Sod Busters' Ball 

Phi Sigma Pi's annual dance> 
the Sod Busters' Ball, will be 
held Friday, January 31, 1958, 
beginning at -7:30 p.m. in the 
Student Center. Featured will 
be Donald JohMEUl and ttie 
Melody Makers. 

One of the few dances at 
the college which includes 
square danc|ng, the Sod Bust- 
ers' BaU will also have polkas, 
jitterbugs, and the usual round 
dancing. Calling the square 
dances, Donald Johnson will be 
backed up by the Melody Mak- 
ers, a small group of college 
musicians, ^ 

Cewntiir Style becoratlofis 

Decorations, though few, will 
be of a simple, country style, 
intended to provide a relaxing, 
informal atmosphere. Dress 
should be casual and light be- 
cause the inside temperature 
is expected to rise as the square 
dancing progresses. 

Phi Sigma Pi has attempted 
to bring" a ifliffeient type of 
dance to the college, and has 
made the dance open to both 
couples and sin^e persons. 
pOUgesBM^ ent^ for 50 cents, 
itfdlVlgniS fbr 30 cents, the 
emphasis being placed on 
couples attending to insure a 
dao^sg partner. 

Tbe past two years have re- 
vealed a large purchase of 
jingle tickets by both male and 
female dancers. 

Ten seiUdiv were irradtiated from Mansfield 
State Teachers College on Monday, Januai^r 20, 
1958. Following a dinner held in their honor in the 
College Dining Boom at 7 p.m., they received their 

Hest and Fim' Miss Allen s Goals 

At the end of this first se- 
mester Miss Eliaabe^ Allen 
will take her first J»blM|$cal 
from Mansfield. 

When asked whether she 
would miss the students and 
fiaculty, she quickly- replied: 
"Certainly I shall miss Mans- 
field's students and faculty! 
Tfamre is a warmth and friend- 
lisen fi«re which cannot be 
matched anywhere. My roots 
are in the college, and deeper 
yet, in the town. My family 
has in some manner been con- 
nected with the college since 
its fountling and I cannot im- 
agine being permanently dis- 
associated from it." 
Teaching l» Exciting' 

This semester she has been 
teaching mainly Eiiglish elec- 
tives: Creative Writing, Philo- 
logy and Romantic Literature 
— and of course, two sections 
of Literature L Sbe enjoys 
teaching tremendously and 
explains that "teaching is the 
most exciting and worthwhile 
work there is. I speak, here, 
with some authority as in niiy 
youth I dabbled around in all 
sorts of quite fascinating ways 
of earning a living, but after 
nineteen years at Mansfield I 
can say in all honesty that 
teaddng is great fun and tru- 
ly satisfying." 

Miss ^len intend^ to do 
soBw tirav^g - duraig her 


leave, spending most of her 
tiine in Kew York, New Jer- 
sey, and Connecticut. She in- 
tends this sabbatical to be a 
vacation of rest and fun, al- 
though, she explained, "I plan 
to do no studying, as such, 
though I shall be gathering 
material for a paper I want to 
do: a comparative study of 
teachers' salaries and those in 
other ^elds." 
Will Attend Hit Plays 

"Mainly," she continued, "I 
am looking forward to Seeing 
every good play in New York 
-—a' very exciting prospect, I 
think. In my salad days I took 
that sort of thing for granted. 
I went -40 the theatre every 

Saturday matinee,, sitting very 
happily in the peanut gallery 
at a cost of fifty cents— and no 
tax! Today, tickets for a hit 
play are a major expenditure 
and one can afford to attend 
only infrequently. On a sab- 
batical, however, one can con- 
sider a round of the good dra- 
matic offerings as a substitute 
for a cruise perhaps." 

Although Miss Allen does in- 
tend to do a bit of traveling, 
she said that th^ Mansfield 
students will be seeii}g her 
quite often during the second 
semester. In her own words: 
"You are not really going to 
be entirely rid of me ,Uiis se- 
mester! I expect to be bere 
rather frequently, popping in 
and out for a few days at a 
time seeing that my dog is 
not being killed with kindness 
by Russell and Marie Sager, 
that the various members of 
my family are in good health 
and that the campus buildings 
are still standing without my 
being here to hold them up!'* 
ToUatum |ilext Year 

She wiH be back next year 
to resume her teachings in 
English, her co-sponsorship of 
College Players with Miss 
Sarah Drum, and her helping 
of Mansfield's English students 
for a new and interesting out- 
look, in literature and gram-

1e^39d^ih#«e Iwb as th« most worthy organisations'

National Scene 

Oil the V national level, one 
trend has become inpieasiagly 
4pBilMlf»t among the state 
teachers colleges during the 
past twenty years. In state af- 
.ter st^ ibese institutions 
have been cenv^ed into state 
colleges, only one of whose 
aims is the preparation of 
teacherft Mcfe than one-third 
of^ tbe^ inslitutions- that were 
j^l^ teaeEecs colleges^., in the 
IjMte 1930's are now state col- 
leges. Today, only arbout one 
hundred state teachers colleges 
remain* and many of these, are 
petitioning their legislatunes 
foi: changes in. mm* jmj^> 
and function. 

Althottgh-^ the newly-formed 
atate eoUeges stiU provide for 

teaolHr proVAralion, they also 
give Hberal ttrts courses and 

grant liberal arts degrees. In 
some cases, they offer one or 
more other professional or vo- 
cational fltu#es in addition, 
tn fact, the offerings of these 
new state colleges are similar 
or nearly identical to those 
of other state colleges and uni- 
versities that never were teach- 
ers colleges. 

A Bjeasan for the Change 

Why this nationwide move- 
ment to convert teachers col- 
leges into tta|4» <^^es? The 
rise in the ntimber of college 
students to be served is a 
major factor. As is pointed out 
in The Jovrnal of TeachM' Ed- 
ugaiHoi» Jflg; jbag, 1955, state 
legislatures noted that 

the teachers colleges already 
had buildings and grounds and 
were growing institutions. In 

addition, |he7 were well locat- 
ed to serve the general popu- 
lation. Rather than new colleges 
being built^ these institutions 
couid be converted quickly and 
eeonomioally into state ctdleges

•ear Editor: 

An age-old problem was pre- 
sented to me this Christmas 
vacation by one of your stu- 
4Mts. WeM^he not ^ troubled 
about cheating, I would refrain 
from writiag this. A social 
^vei^ «nd 
he seemed to care not to whom 
he talked. A loose ton^e, a | 
babbling tongue brou|h|t about | 
by We lofeia S!^it8» sbriietimes I 
brings more honesty from an ; 
ijidiyidual than the sobriety of 
tdM aeon sun; in effect, the 
calamity of cheating posed, to 
Tumi ah tfiorBMMM prOUem. 

I, dpar Editor, am writing to 
inform you that your student 
is doing himself no smaHI' 
amount of useless harm by 
thinking about STOPPtNO the 
apparent goings-on of cheating. 
By way of history* you must 
realize that cheat^ was once 
an honorable occupation IF 
any form of cheating was com- 
laendabi^ U not detected by the 
pnofositoaitl acbaUur. Aak aty 
aacieBt Chiiiese. 

Modern times are not unlike 
the GOOD OLD DAYS — the 
twentieth century student still 
boasts Of ^ the tests in which 
he lisr elfeafe*, anid his friends 

experience rollicking laughter 
at the idiocy of some instructor 
wh» has failed to detect the 
simplest method of cheatin;g. 
And, of course, there is always 
someone who is a little more 
brazen than the next guy and 
openly cheats because he knows 
that nothing will happen if 
the instructor catches Mm. Or 
take a look at the hud<Ue ,^en 
the instructor leaves the room 
—I doubt that the latest jokr 
is being told (there is no laugh- 

And the poor fellow with 
whom I was conversing said 
something was being done on 
hircampns.^ comfhit (^uatiBg 
— now it is my turn to breiA: 
into laughter at his idiocy. Does 
he not realize that cheating 
has endured attacks tof cen- 
turies and that it will oentinue 
to be an avocation of students 
everywhere for centuries to 
«ome? Surely, you must have 
more intelligent students than 
he at your college? I oitce read 
a littlfe bit of wise philosophy: 
"if you can't beat 'em, join 
'em." This way all the students 
get excellent marks, everyone 
is happy, and the guy who takes 
a little time out to ^limepgraph 
a test "that is out" can make a 
little extra cash. Here is an 
ideal situation that will elim- 
inate many cases of ulcers 
perienced by the so-cdled con- 
scientious student. 

And so, dear Editor, why 
don't your honest students ad- 
mit their jealousy of the clever 
cheaters and kindly ask theu: 
assistance? They will be bet- 
ter off in the long run^ 

Please forgive any misspel- 
ling or bad use of language- 
lost my crib notes in English. 

Yours trulyi ^

Dear Editor, 

I would like to offer some 
constructive, yet pointed, crit- 
icism about the sports' section 
of this paper. 

It is literally "sweet with 
sarcasm." A Uttle pun now and 
then Is to be expectiild, but 
lately the sarcastic seasoning 
has been sprinkled to6 gedef- 

And then there's the question 
of partiality. N^tvu^aUy every- 
one's entitled to his own 
friends, but that privilege 
should not carry through in 
print How maay^^Unes^ guys 
who really 4eservA "pats on 
the back" are neglected! i^nd 

Let's have less sa^roanBr ihll 
less prejudice.

EARidion has predicted the 
eiMnpt^e <tt8»pp«anm:e of iHre» 
eiMii^ . teachers eo^egM with- 
in- the next ten or twenty 
yeocs. The expectation, how- 
ever, is. not that these insti- 
tutions will close but that they 
wfll change, thefir nature. 
The State Seen* 

What IB the situation regard- 
ing the ftate teachers colleges 
in Pennsylvania? President 
Lewis W. Rathgeber ef this col- 
lege has pointed out that there 
are two separate ideas which 
are gaining adherents in this 
state. The one is the idea* that 
the teachers colleges should 
eitP5ind into other fields on 
the four-year level — in other 
words, become state colleges in 
function if not in name. The 
other is the trend toward al- 
lowing these institutions to 
give .gra«kia4e work- leading t« 
the master's degree in educa- 
tion. Between these twd ideas, 
there is probably an element 
of competition. 

-So far, graduate programs 
ilk education ha^ heiMi initi- 
atted at Indiana and Edinboro 
Slate feachers Ck>lleges. It is 
vMMm ttet other state teach- 
e|jsf collets in Pennsylvania 
will be offering graduate work 
in the near future. Of course, 
if the state legislature sliould 
r«iuire that all public school 
tiElichers. in Pennsylvania hold 
a ' mastOT's- degiee, graduate 
wlsk would douUless be given 
ill all the teachers colleges. 
AiStaltment l^r-Df. BoehM 

hf^iat will eventually happen 
toi Pemtsyl^niaV state- teach- 
ers colleges on the four-year 
level has apparently not b^en 
dttermined. Last February, Dr. 
Charles H. Boehm^ State Super- 
iiMiendent of Public Instruction, 
iifdicated that a large increase 
i* the percentage of day-stu- 
dent enrolftnent fn the teach- 
els colleges might soon bring 
rladjustments in- tiie state set- 
up. He explained that a full-

ulation and individual student 

.,*'We may redistribute certain 
ialiiBwa branches of educa- 
»n," Dr. Boehra stated "We 
lipe to bring up enrollment 

-better facilities." 
^The Superintendent noted 
that geOff-kphl cat distribution 
of population would be an im- 

portant factor in determining 
future expansion of the teach- 
ers colleges. He said that the 
department had been against 
elaborate expansion at poor 
siteSr but he did not specify 
which colleges were considered

For some time, Mansfield 
State Teachers College has 
been laying plans for a major 
builidinf iiraipMan, based on 
the expectation of more than 
doubled enrollment by 1965. 
Since Dr. Boehm made his 
statement last February, the 
college has made coiishSerable 
progress with these plans, in 
conjunction with the General 
State Authority. Actual con- 
struction is scheduled to bejgin 
this year. 

The rise in the number of 
those seeking to enter college 
is general and not restricted 
to certain areas. It is likely 
that all the state teachers col- 
leges in Pennsylvania will have 
to expand their facilities in 
a major way if they are to 
provide for the swelling num- 
bers of students. In addition, 
the other colleges and univer- 
sities in this state may prove 
increasingly unable to meet 
the needs of all ^ose qualified 
young people i4~ t^ili^9f^ 4ige 
who are not planning to be- 
come teachers. The ► present 
state teMhenr^collegea may find 
it their responsibility to pro- 
vide a good ednctitfeir fbr more 
and more ^.-tiMSeijiot&g pe^e 

Sooner or later, changed con- 
ditions may lead the teachers 
oolleges of PumsyWania to 
broaden into state collets, just 
89 their countei^prti in n»ny 
states' have aGrea^^cSier 
Another Factor . 

There is one otlier factor 
to consider. 

Some educators hold the hy- 
pothesis that liberal education 
taad professional edBcation are 
inost effectively provided in 
separate periods of time, with 
a student taking a full four 
yiars^ Ifelaftt a*t8 and then 
going on for a yo^ of jprof eg- 
sion^ training and experience. 
If this idea gains currency, it 
may mean that the present 
state teachers colleges will one 
day concentrate their profes- 
sional preparation on the grad- 
uate level, giving eveii prospec* 
tive teachers a regular liberal 
arts edncation in tftetr WteiPf 
l^aduate years. /

Age of Analysis 

—A. L. Chiarllli 

viewer, when writtng in a re- 
cent edition of the N«w York 
Timos, captioned his critique 
of James C^From Hare to 
Eternity") Jones* latest novel, 
"Some Came Running," with 
the three eyecatching words 
LUlieh head this paragraph. 
Aj^parently the Cozzens-inspir- 
^--^ sdeititje reflects the man's 
opinion of this 1,266 page 
tome. Not only that, -but a 
Januai'y 1958 issue of Time, in 
its booliHFeview atetion, ven- 
tured that the novel '^ia a 
mishmash of joyless fornica- 
|ion, head - splitting hangovers, 
and a heo-Dreiserian convic- 
tion that life itself is a four- 
letter word." Saturday Review 
tore it apart, but for reasons 
seemingly more mature and 
comprehensive. However, the 
^ key-note of overdone and un- 
believeably raw sex no doubt 
was foremost among that re- 
viewer's objections to the nov- 
el. I lutven't read the book yet, 
and probably wont (it costs 
$7.50) unless someone .gives it 
to me or a shrewd publisher 
decides to glue the thing be- 
tween paper backs and throw 
it at the nation. 
Good or bad, as far as lit- 
' erature is concerned, I believe 
that "Some Came Running," 
judging, from the reviews, 
could give "Peyton Place" a 
- ^lose run-up. That is, if 

enoiigh Americans read it to 

discover ' that it's liberally 
•Hsprinkled with basic and extra- 
realistic sex. The reviews' in 
the previously quoted maga- 
zines are ftUed with curiously 
interesting qaotes..~none of 
which will appeal to a prude-. 
concerning non-sexual women, 
' an aspirant writer who doesn't 
' believe in the amenities of 
courtship, and a 'iiisnble» fat, 
stupid 'pig"* who has a most 
annoying habit of picking her 
nose when . someone attempts 
— ^Hte^Htnake love to her. 

"Peyton Place" was just as 
^ bad or just as good, depend 
. ing on ••who you are and how 
it appealed to you. I read that 
one— hqsir, many of us didn't? 
The Metalious novel held an 
appeal to which most of we 
Americans cater. The tremend- 
ous statistics (hard and paper 
bound copies) undisputedly 
prove this. I wish 1 had one- 
fifth of the money that dear 
Grace made. But at the same 
time I am annoyed to think 
'<■< ■■ that our -satire country can be 
. -Btt delfarioUsly and sensually 
- consumed by a novel of this 

As far as Tm concerned, 
the only worth of the Metal- 
ious-Jones type of noVel is the 
immediate and sexual sort. Ad- 
mittedly I have read this kind 
of novel. -But I keep up, with. 
m ^^ft«#i*'fe%-tho rei^ 

' good, lasting and honorably 
representative American fic- 
Uon which rolls from contem- 
porary pifnes^ as well as 

' standard and basic material 
from ours and other countries. 
I used to wonder how I would 
be able td fell what was "good" 
or>*HMia" contemporary flc- 
^.HSomet^Ms I told myvelf 
that if it contained any refer- 
ence to sex it must be bad. 
But I later realized that I was 

" of! on the wrong beam— look

Camiius Activities 

Art CluV 

at Boccaccio, Rousseau and 
many of the other past estab- 
lished greats. I realized then 
that sex, aa a natural part of 
life, was and always will be in 
literature which is after all, 
an honest expression of life. 

But not so fast. There is 
such ' a thing, or so I tidnk, as 
"good" and "bad" sex. Boccac- 
cio and Rousseau speak openly 
and intelligently of what we 
all know about — or shotdd 
know about by this timo. Sel* 
dom has pnrersion and that 
"something different and new" 
motif entered into their or any 
of the other |iterary giants' 
writing. Chaucei**s Wife of 
Bath was as rowdy and willing 
a woman as ever was, I've of- 
ten thought, but nevertheless 
I wasn't disgusted or, on the 
other hand, drawn with blind 
passion to the work. Geoffrey 
had a head on his shoulders 
and portrayed a more or less 
licentious woman of his time 
as she actually was. Int««st- 
ing and good for the brain. 

But the perverse acts when 
appearing in print of contem- 
porary authors, are a disgrace 
to Uterature itself, as well as 
to our own nation. The books 
which contain them are indi- 
cative of the shallow Ameri- 
can mind. I know — I reftd. it, 
and I suppose one would now 
attempt to call me shallow; 
but he'd better refrain from 
doing so, because I'm not. 
Good lit appeals to me, always 
has, and always will— but I 
want to see what's going on 
just like you do. 

I don't make a practice of 
it— and when I do, I offset it 
by reading Faulkner, Stein- 
beck, Wolfe, or some other 
outstanding (in a meritorious 
way) American author. If I 
were to stick to tho Jones and 
Metalioujs .woito (and 1 can 
name the rest of 'em, too) 
I'd have no right in even say- 
ing what I do now. All of us 
are in a bad way if we read 
the "sexerature" of today and 
nothing else. Better that we 
read Peanuts and nothing but 

Gene P'NeilL used Sex as 
the theme of most of his plays 
—rather, he used sex to de- 
velop the theme. But it is 
"good" sex, realistically por- 
traying America, and is not 
overdone to the point where it 
distracts from his literary mer- 
it. And, being nice, clean, de- 
cent sex, unfortunately it 
doesn't have general appeal. 

Well, enough of our bril- 
liant American sexologists. Too 
bad Joes didn't stick to "From 
Here to Eternity." 
Bob. Saar, through mis-repre- 
sented advertisements, received 
a newspaper entitled "The Age 
of Reason." Not by Paine, this 
neDropapeiL^had as its basic 
do^titoe the destruction of 
Catholicism. I was amused and 
at the same time pretty burn- 
ed when I read it. What sheer 
ignoranee-~4iot oven intelli- 
gent writing' that' conveyed its 
own warped message. Some of 
the articles openly blared ri- 
diculous statements — about a 
pair ol Rosai^ Beads which,

Oh, how I hate the end of 
vacaticms! They are, as ' ^h* 
teenagers aay, 'Hhe most/* as 
far as being disagreeable, dis-

You enjoy the beginning of 
vacations just as everyone 
does. There is the anticipa- 
tion of going home and seeing 
your family and being away 
from the atmosphere of college 
for awlule. 

The main part of the ira- 
cation is nice, too. You see 
friends from other colleges 
that you haven't seen since 
Thankagiying. There was the 
bustle aiid the thrill of Christ-

comes the let-down.

As I Wat Sajing . 

-Bob KloM 


PtycliMnalyit Your«*lf 

Almost every well-known publication, with the exception 
Cft tfa^ Plashlifihn has- one of those "Teist Yourself" quizzes. 
Here, then; is our offering to this literary field. 

Are you neurotic? Do you ever possess a feaf or "phobia" 
<c6ii^ 't^m M€ Cxs^k mpther-ln-Uw)? Perhaps 

you. suffer from, for i&stftaee, "-altiphobia," fear of heights, 
"Claustrophobia," fear of Santa Oaus, "aquaphobia," dUBculty 
in breatlUiig- uiid^r- wator, or phobiaphoUa/' fear of having a 
"phobia^* : " . 

! If 'th(B foUd^iriiig test shows that you fure in such a fear- 
^ neuix>ttc statav I will be t^ad to treaf ydi| 76r a nominal 
fee (slightly higher north of the South Pole). A« proOf of my 
ability, I would like to cite a few of \ the most difficult eaaes 
that I have treated and cured. 

(1) A man who had a morUd: fear; <tf being covnr^ with 
gold i>aint (gilt complex). , 

(2) A Texan with an inferiority complex. 

(3) A man who buUt > house tvith 35 rooms, 'btft no toi- 
let. It was uncanny. 

(4) A man who sufferedHM^the delusion that tXl wo- 
men were witches. (I gave Mm a broomstidc^e knew what 
to do with it.) ^ y 

(5) A woman who had an insane desire to have a second 
toilet installed in her home. (I wrote a thesis on that one — 
called it "Wife's Other John.") 

Proof enoui^? Well, on with the quiz. 

Read each ques^on carefully. If your answer is yes, place 
an X in the blank which follows the question; if no, place a 
Y in that space. Do not answer both yes and no unless you 
have a split persomdity and disagree n^th yourself. 

1. Do you em imagine that your left foot is a wire- 
haired terrier? - — ^— — — 

2. Do you get drunk on rye bread? 

3. Do you ever wish you were a mattress so you could 
lie in bed all day? 

Oh LMdirihip 

-^y Jfid^^el Fleming 

4. What is the difference between an ai^e? 

' 5. Did you have one grunch but the eg^hmtitver there? 
6. When Lady Macbeth shouted, "Out, damned Spot!",' 

why did she want the dog to leave? — 

Scoringr W you have six Xs, you have enough to win two 
games of tic-tac-toe. If you have an odd number of Xs and an 
even number of Ys, or vice versa, you can't make a word from 
them no matter how you arrange them. 

J Now we move on to second part of the tiest which is 
interiE«ftRttoB of figures. 

i- 'Ml 

•A • X ■• B ^ •■ 

: ' ■ \- Fig. I 1- ^ 

What does Figure 1 look lifce to you? ' 
^- , (a) an inkblot and the blotter? 

(b) an eight-ball dnd the box it came in? 

(c) a dift^ snowball and an albino Ma^board? 
Now draw the paper closer to your eyes very slowly imtil 

your nose touches the X between the figures. (Ibis has nothing 
to do with the test, b^t notice how easily your eyes cross.) 

Regardless of what,you think you see in Figure 1, A and B 
are exactly the same color, shape and she. If they appear 
othorwise to you, you have either a neurosis or Hodgkin's dis- 
ease and should give it back to him as soon as possible. 

If these tests show that you are definitely neurotic, and 
voU you may be (when given to 10^ persons in various occupa- 
tions, diese testa proved eondudvely that tinree out of five is 
60%), I suggest immediate treatment. Send now for my free 
book entitled "Canasta Without Fear." ^idclose only $14.96 to

Column writers and radio 
comics are engaged in a highly 
competitive business, and their 
anxiety to ^tablish the orig- 
inality of their material is 
thoroughly ' understandable. 

It.luis always atrudc me ms 
tt#eulous, however, for them 
to ' cry --THIEF! THIEF!" at ri- 
vals who very possibly over- 
heard a juicy bit of gossip over 
"tte aamp^lEer table or in the 
Mme 3>est rbon. Xliey saon to 
ifcffiget'ithat they actually create 
y&y few of the smart quips 
and hilarious anecdotes they

them '*their" stories probably 
repeat them to a doien otiier 
couples during the course of 
the same evemng.

a crisis, the likes of which 
have never been experienced 
l)efore in history. Yes, a crisis 
in our own eountry. A crisis 
iny«t#Qt icotltt leadership. A 
crisis which can be met only 
by our country's people — ^YOU 

Now, it's not an easy task 
to meet such n crisis. It's no 
easy task to sacrifice a little 
time in preparing ourselves for 
the future. No, it is not an 
eaor task to gain the knowledge 
that you and I need to meet 
the crisis. But then, is anything 
that is really worth while easy? 

We are students in» ooUege. 
CbUege presents its problems, 
but it also gives its benefits. 
And today more than ever we 
must benefit from college. We 
must leave college with a 
knowledge fi|r ^groator than 
that wtiieh we had when we 
started. We have to prepare 
to be tomorrow's leaders, not 
tomorrow's followers. In our 
hands lies the future of Am- 
erica^or the better or fOr 
the worst. I think you will a- 
gree that good leadership is 
the solution to Au: problem 
of meeting, the crisis. 

A leaider is a pi^son who 
leads, directs, or is the guiding 
head of a group or activity. 
His purpose is not to just Have 
followers, but to influence his 
followers so that they too 
might better themselves. 

No, a leader is not an out- 
cast, not one who is conceited 
and biased for himself only. 
He is not one wlio l^e^s him- 
self above his surroundings. 
He is one who will sacrifice 
his whole self for the better- 
ment of hia followers. 

YOU ha# ^alHiea of leader- 
ship; we all have certain qual- 
ities of leadership. Let us take 
a look at aOme of these :qualir 
ties,;' • ' 

One need not be m mental 
giant to be a leader. Everyone 
has these qualities if they 
would only look for them. 
Qualities For Leadership 

A good leader needs balanc- 
ed judgment and self-confi- 
dence. A good example of a 
person' with self confidence is 
a person who freely expresses 
his ifieipn at ^orm meetings, 
class meetings, etc. 

Lttyalty is the watchword of 
leadership. The loyal leader is 
a good leader working for a 
worthy cause. 

A good leader knows what it 
means to plan, and he plans 
one thing at a time not wasting 
his energy by trying to do too 
many IMWIti'^it^wie toe. 

Shortly we are going to be 
faced with a challenge. A chal- 
lenge to all of us to pick for 
next year's leaders the TOPS 
on the MSTG eimpus. 

Let's pick next -year's officers 
seriously! Let's choose them 
ior. their abilities rather than 
for personal friendship. Look 
around you and Und out who 
might be just the person for 
the job. Maybe it's that guy 
sitting over there in the cor- 
ner. Maybe it's the ^person 
4)rinki|ig a coke by you at the 
Hut. mshe it's the girl up in 
her room studying or the guy 
-down at the gym practicing 
basketball. Maybe the person 
is a football play«r or ■ iennto 
star. The right person for dkn 
job might be y^wr worst enemy 
— maybe a person you do not 
get along with. BCaybe the per- 
son for tho |oE la YOU. What 
do you say we start looking 
around for an ideal leader to 
fill an important open office? 

So hero'a aslting that the 
campoi nay vote aorloualy, for 
the person who you can honestr 
ly say will make a good leader 
—one who is not lax in his 
methods, but who will keep 
his part^ular group active. 

The need for leaders exists 
wherever men aspire to be 
i:iWlise<|L But beware of a so- 
called leader ^o has too 
great an appetite for publicity 
or public acclatoi. These are 
not true leaders. ^.

—One Who Carea 


A while ago I noticed that 
tl» Student Christian Associa- 
tion- was going to have a series 
of panels on "Courtships and 
Marriages," and since I plan 
to enter these happy states 
someday, I decided to go. 

One of the questions in par- 
Iktfar stirred my thou^ts. 
This question asked the panel 
what qualities a person should 
look for in a girL The panel 
members gave many good sug- 
gestions such as commim-sense, 
healthy religious attitude, char- 
acter, and many more, but they 
did not mention my kind of 
girl. The girl I would pick 
would have all of these things; 
however, I would add some- 
thing the SCA panel forgot. 
Tliat little something ia . . . 

Webster says, "Femininity is 
the quality of l>eing feminine." 
I have now establiahed definite- 
ly that this is a quality. I be- 
lieve that a truly feminine girl 
—be she fat, skinny, or just 
right — could charm the heart 
of a wheelbuTow if she really 
tried, and without being dpped 
into a skintight dress to do 

My Ideal has a little of every- 
thing that is female, but not 
an excess of anything. She has 
a touch of lipstick and rouge, 
but not a smear, and she wears 
her freckles like beauty marks. 
She wears a-fnll skirt, under 
which many slips swish and 
whisper as she walks by my 
side. When she is with me she 
walks with her hand on my 
arm, but she does not cooataht- 
ly nuzzle me as we _ wrfk 
through North Hall. 

My girl will not don hunting 
boots and go hunting with me; 
she is too much of a lady. If 
I want a hunting companion 
I will buy a Beagle! Just make 
sure his nose is wet, and you 
woD't have any trouble, with 
him— beaidear^ hound doesn't 
need the latest sporting outfit' 
pictured in this month's Vooue. 

Now if . you will be so kind, 
picture a beautiful girl all doll- 
ed up in a wUte evening gown. 
It» is sprinkled with sequins, 
and she looks good enough to 
eat. Got the picture? Now— 
dangle a ^gvette from her 
Up. Haa iiKK picture dunged? 
I ).believe tliat the Rev. Peter 
Marshall once said, "No man 
ever complimented a woman 
because qf the odor of stale 
tdwceo in her hair." I agree 
that a cigarette in the mouth 
of a pretty girl is about as fem- 
inino as n diily sweat shirt 

Dr Jelcyl Mr. Hyilo. 

A lovely girl in a flowing, 
swirling jewn is a dream, a 
Goddess of Loye, .but pour her 
into a Jane ftuaseU ' creation, 
and she t^ecod^es the tSoddess 
of the Hunt. 

And so I believe that a girl's 
femininity can be detected, to 
some degree, by the clothes 
she wears (or doesnt wear). 
You can also tell a great deal 
about a girl aimply by the way 
she walka aeroas the /'Hut.** 

If she is coming across the floor 
to see you, and if she slithers 
across in sections, then look 
out! trouble is on the way. 

I can hear the girls now: 
"He has his nerve," they are 
probably saying. Well, men 
take it from me; I know that 
the feminine girl still exists 
if you want h^er. I know .be- 
cause I've got one. She is not 
a ravinf , exotic beauty, and her 
figure will never get her into 
the movie s , but slfe ki t ows ttat 
her heritage as a wmnan is 

Take Five" - 

— Ralfdi Verrastro 

It seems that while everyone 
is talking about our education- 
al system, no one is really ex- 
cited enough to do anything 
about it. That is te say, %o 
on<^. but the political "holiday- 
ers" who are up for reelection 
this new year of 1958. Criti- 
cism from these few is being^ 
at~aIM>liases of modT' 
^n education: diriver training, 
home eoonomics, special edu- 
cation, etc. 

lliose of us who are fearless 
enough to remember the need* 
ed school legislation that these 
same people helped shelve last 
summer, must identify our- 
selves with many^ who mul aoI . 
excited nor ^uDidud^ tdannedf*' 
only anxious to improve whero 
improvement is needed. 

Briefly, it is my contention 
that an act of Congress will 
do little or nothing to improve 
our educational system. Con- 
gress can, however, help pro- 
vide adequate facilities and per- 
haps back the sound education- 
al teaets of nien Itte Dr. 
Boehm,« State SttperinteiH|^|iy.l 
pf Public Instruction. 

Unable to escape the fate of 
a terrible vice I have recently 
developed, that of reading tho 
newspaper, I find that there 
are two opposing views con- 
cerning the public school in- 
struction: (1) change our en* 
tire edneattonali'jeliipk 12) stop 
wasting,.. tioio .ftif4, aeoon^lirii 
sonaethii% in the fiassreems. 
The former changes are extotd- 
ing the school WMtk Uf ate 
days; forgetting -ttiki'vMs^-aiid 
coneentratinrr on the sciences. 

The latter points its finger 
at the teaching profession, but 
it is not really being critical, 
it is simply romlnding us that 
a raise in daascoom standards 
would accommodate all de- 
mands for an informed fnd 
trained populace. ' 

The days (tf taking Mr. 
Smith's course because he's an 
easy teacher and assigns no 
homework are, or soon vniil be, 
numbered. We have no room 
in this age for BIr. Smith' or 
the attitude he fosters. Mr. 
Smith must go, or else gather 
every ounce of his courage and 
maintain standarda» no majtor

For a guy who neveir played 
high school ball, Al Zyga has 
already proved his high school 
coach a poor judge of talent. 
Although still plenty rough 
around the edges, big Al sur- 
prises everyone with his po- 
tential all around ability. He 
has proved invaluable in Mans- 
^ItTs c3ge hofijSft thus.-fat this 
■ yeasda. 

Big Al looks to be the best 
bet for the local rebounding 
honors and his excellent jump 
shot could bring scoring laurels 
his way also. He has all the as- 
sets of a top notch athlete: good 
quick hands, speed, agility, and 
streitgth. On the court he has 
shown ability to drive and play 
a Steady defertshre ^niiie. 

Hfe best performance of the 
season was in the second Lock 
Haven contest. He controlled 
both boards ^ly well and shot 
with thir best accuracy he has 
shown since coming here. He 
hustled loose ball and showed 
some good ability in getting the 
ball down court. Esp ecial ly ef- 
fective on the fast brtak, he 
used Ms sp<^d and tremendous 
jumping ability to '^greaffy aid 
this phase of llki Hbuntainoer 
attack. • - 

tently hitting on jump shots . 
from the keyhole until the • 
Mounts built up a small iead 
of 5 to 6 , points. Thiy" didn't 
last, however,' and Bloomsburg 
came roaring , baclc to set the- 
stage for tha Ae^ fhijtsh*. 

The Mountaineer cagers re- 
sume action Wednesday night 
traveling to Ithaca, N. Y., for 
a return engagement with Ith- 
aca College. Earlier in the year 
the New Yorkers visited Mans- ' 
field and returned with a well* > 
earned 64-48 ^\ictory. 

In that first meeting of the 
twQF teams, the Mouots collaps- 
ed completely in ' Uie ' secimd 
half of the ball game as the 
Ithacans outscored them.39-;24, . 
The first half had Mansfield ^ 
matching. - the ^ tailer yi^t^ : 
shot €or shot. Al Zyga woi^ed 
good on the Ix^^^s and Jon 
Peterson hit for seven poiilts . 
in that first half. \ \ 

But then the Ithacans soWed 
the Mount defense and moVed 
almost at will. Four of the ' 
visitors scored in di^ubie fig- 
urea witii'^-CKir-^iiMii- - 
live doublets ai • second-hall* 

With all of these factors in 
mind, Coaeb Bill Gibson is tak- 
ing no ebaiMses for another let- 
down. Since the Lock Haven 
game, he has gone along with 
his combination of Firestone, 
Felt, Zyga, Martini, and Hvizch 
zak. The CMRdi feete that this 
combination can 'out-run and 
out-hustle the ttiller Ithaca 
cagers. Peterson and Gamble 
are also expected to see action. 

. The home schedule resumes 
its place iagjcollege events Sat- 
urday night whei; a, classy; Ly- 
conring team encounters the . 
Mounts in the college gymtt^.^^ 
asium. The Lycos are another 
team which hKmbled the 
Mounts earlier in the season , 
but idii^ figure to be under- 
dogs in the coming coflrtEesI^ ^ 
For while Mansfield has sfei«nMf ; 
a great deal of im^ovement 
in the last few gnnes, the Ly- 
C99 ^am had trouble getting 
back into the victory column. 

In the December meeting at 
WilKamsport, George Sullivan 
of l^ontag had a field dar ig^d 
24 points agidnslf ttie haj^tessi - 
Mounts. Down 8 points at half- 
time the locals never got back 
in a b^ game as loosely play- 
ed as ai^ ttus year. Coach 
Gibson feels that he can cor* - 
rect most of the mistakes and 
that the Mounts can reverso 
that 91-71 defeat. 

With Ron Firestone assuming 
the role of field general, Mans- 
field evened its season's record 
at 2-2 in a thrilling 7&6ft vic- 
tory over Lock Haven State 
Teachers College. The retHnad 
fcejrt the club moving, set up 
most of Martini's 20 pointi, 
and scored at convenient into^ . 
vala himself; M Zyga shbwe44^ 
tremendous strength an thic [ 
boards and began shooting a9»^; 
curately to gather 17 points. 

The first half of the baH - 
gttne was fahrly even. Tho 
Eagles started fast and assum* 
ed a 9-2 lead in the first min- 
utes of play. But the Mounts 
stayed within strilcing distance 
and, after Paul Rvizdzak enter- 
ed the game, hit freely and 
frequently to take a command- , 
ing 37-30 half-time lead. In the 
drive, the. Moose hit five 
straight doUMets and hitttlied 
seven rebounds. 

The second half action saw 
Mansfield pull steadily away. 
Bob Felt hit for eight and Mar- 
tini for sixteen in the last half. 
Coach Gibson let the unit of 
Felt, fit^stone, Martini, Hviatd- 
aak, and Zyga in action through- 
out the final three quarters—

thfe li|0t 4|f tte 80^ deadheads 
°wiib cidled thoiMelvea ath- 
letes. The grid season was dis- 
asterous because the squad 
cmiladiiei lonfiiM who didn't 
give a iiarticultr d— whether 
wis fM» or not In fact, some 
of them sieemed awfully amus- 
ed by the degrading of Mans- 
f fleld which Jhey themijelVes 

We had a supposedly fine 
football player, a ^bior, who 
could have helped the squad 
immeasurably. But did he? 
Nope. In one partiqular j^e, 
he thought it more hnfportant 
to converse with the specta- 
tors than to interest himself 
with the action on the field. 
When Ihe coach wanted to 
send him into the game, he 
couldn't be found. And once 
he did get in, he hindered 
more than helped the squad. 
At one instant, he thought it 
better to display hts emotion- 
"ai dirilke of a poor pass from 
center than to pounce on a 
loose pigskin. 

But whsj2i<* on one guy? 
Ten 'fbotball fellows graduated 
last year— they all thought they 
were world beaters. All but a 
few found it more convenient 
to adopt their own training 
rules * and ' most df diese 
thought they knew more about 
football than the coaoh. The 
last of them is now gone. 

Some of the "old guard" of 

the basketball team were 

shocked ^iiito a ri^er -^ttel 

awakening when they return- 
ed to the hardwoods. They 
found that they weren't too 
surjB of their jobs after alL A 
new coadk wiiHi different ideas 
jarred the complacency and 
the' "lettermen" who rode the 
gravy train for three years sat 
out most of the season. 

The basketball season wasn't 
a great success. But a new 
attitude was instilled and 
guys who had a desire to win 
were given i^ciority over the 
"Hood tosoT's." The seeds of 
complacency were disappear- 
ing — ^the, revolution was near- 
ly omaiflete. 

To be sure, a number of 
undergraduates dropped by 
the wayside — those too weak 
to resist "going along with the 
gang." And so therefore vre 
still have a few "good losers" 
who are quite content and 
sometimes amused at the 
futility of Mansfield. But there 
are n^ too many of these. : 

And so we have begun thi^ 
year. The 1^7-58 athletic year 
shotrid foe the brightest in 
msQy moons of Mansfield 
sports. The great majority of 
guys want to win and go about 
doing just that in a very ser- 
ious manner. We will not 
have the greatest record in 
the wodd at the end of this 
year — but it won't be because 
our guys didn't put out every 
ounce of abttity is them. 

Because of the new attitude 
the future years look far more 
optimistic than they did four 
years ago.

Maybe th^ jr. high basket- 
ball team has the right idea. 
During the .first game of the 
season, while leading by 40 
points they suddenly put on 
the full court press. When the

were trying to do one player 
exclaimed, **We iranna really

Age of Analysis 

(Continued from Page 6) 

Saar, Martin and a few of the 
others around the dorm had a 
gas reading it. I very frankly 
will admit that I an ccortain 
there is not one person on this 
campus who would read a 
thing of that sort and give it 
any serious thought. Hope I'm 
not wrong. ("Age ot Reason" 
— nuts! I'd rathw we all read 
"Peyton Place"— at least the 
harlots say, "Oh, God!" which 
evinces a little belief.) 

If College Players does a 
George Bernard Shaw for their 
spring play, as I hope they 
will, quite definitely there will 
be TOlnsnees to alcohol, as 
well as a few "vehement eja- 
culations" uttered at very ap- 
propriate moments. Tough if 
some of our not so understand- 
ing peers attempt to keep us 
from doing it. Shaw has a 
place in my dramatics organ- 
ization repertoire-^about time 
that Mansfield, town and col- 
lege, opened its doors to the 
great playwrights. How many of 
you would like . to see our 
thespians produce American 
creations such as "Death of a 
Salesman," "Long Day's Journ- 
ey Into Night," or maybe "Mr. 
Roberts"? Shaw*s good, and 
if the organization decides 
that he*s for them, then I urge 
all of you to attend. Perhaps 
most of us are not familiar 
with titles of his plays— but 
he did write "Pygmalion," the 
story of ftroadway'a "My Fair 

Cirqui # ■ 

(Contlnti*! h9m Pac* 1) 

The remaind«F-of- the pro- 
gram was presented by the 
combined ^^len^J^Mlf PMito- 
mime group. P#imiul of the 
company include Freddy Al- 
beck, Dutch nihne Aart Brou- 
wer, French-Chilean- Jean Ce- 
bron, Edythe Udane, assisting 
artist Hubrecht €aatel« and 
pianist Hartingsveldt. 

The Pantomime Circus is 
a company of six dancers, 
comics, and mimes who are 
touring the United States. 
In 1954, the group launched 
a new show, and after a 
smash tryout at the ^a<»b's 
Pillow Festival, the company 
ran an eleven month tour in 
Europe, visiting many times in 
Germany, Switzerland, Bel- 

were repeat performances and 
sold-out houses wherever the 
company went. 

The creator of this unique 
company is Miss Goslar, who 
is, according to Town and 
Country iQagazine, "A genius 
— «ne of ^ jgMi^ mknic 
and pantomime actresses of 
the present day." Miss Goslar 
was recently proclaimed the 
world's greatest female mime, 
acid, previous to her appear- 
ance in the Pantomime Circus, 
she had been seen in such var^ 
ied productions as "Who's 
Who" with Impgene C(j^a, and 
did choreography for Charles 
Laughton'a "GaiUleo" . and the 
Hollywood Bowl 'Teder- 

Miss Goslar was born in 
Dresden, Germany, and flee- 
u)g her homeland during Hit- 
ler's regime, she toured Eur- 
ope as a professional dancer 
in Erika Mann's anti-Nazi 
Theatre, "The Peppermill." 
Coming to the United States 
with this theatre group, she 
did solo coast-to-coast tours 
and had several Broadway en- 
gagements. IHtring her decade 
in Hollywood, riie, among 
other thihga, played hi several 
shows, created one of her own, 
and did choreography for 
many movies indudilli "fUyer 
of No RetMrn." 

The first edition of "For 
Humans Only" was created by 
Miss Goslar and the newly 
formed Pantomime Circus in 
1954. With a small company, 
she made a successful tour of 
Europe, returning to the Unit- 
ed States to play a Hollywood 
run in 1956. There she created 
the second edition of the show 
of the sanie name and did a 
repeat tour of Europe where 
she was just as widely acclaim-

"Law makes society livable 
—it does hot make men good," 
stated Mrs. Norman Downs, a 
New En^and lawyer, in her 
addreaa to the student body of 
MSTC on January 7, 1058. 

Everyone should have some 
knowledge of the laws by which 
they are governed. Pei^le in 
Pennqrlvania are governed by 
common law. This is the law 
which was Inrought from Eng- 
land by the early colonists. 

"If all law were abolished, 
reasonable people would da the 
same things," Mrs. Downs went 
on to say. 

Speaker Describes Law 

Stimulating, entertflbitaig, and 
challenging were^tte adjectives 
that the speaker used to des- 
cribe law. VariousClaws sound 
rather amusing but there are 
reasoaa for them. Mrs. Downs 
cited several of these laws 
which iMvtidii to hty^im^ and 

"Although the law aims for 
justice, it does not always -ol^ 
tain it»" itaid the speaker. 

"In this country it is not nec- 
essary for an individual to 
prove his innocence; the court 
must prove his guilt. ' 

Two Questions Answered 

"is direct or circumstantial 
evidence better?" is a .ques- 
tion that Mrs. Downs threw 
out to the audience. She then 
cited two actual cases which 
involved the two types and 
showec^that they ean both be 
effective. In fact, cfarcumstan- 
tial evidence is sometimes more 
accurate than direct evidence. 

Another question that Mrs. 
Downs presented to the ^audi- 
ence was. "Should an attorney 
defend a person he believes to 
be guilty?" She said it is per- 
missable unless the attorney 
feels he can't do justice to the 
case. ♦ , 

Mrs. Downs was introduced 
by Fred Jupenlaz, public re- 
lations director ol MSTC. The 
address i^as pqresented at the 
ii^kly assembly jot the student

renovatieh. The Maintenance 
Department has painted the 
ceiling, and the white color 
has improved the li^^ting con- 
siderably. During the second 
semester, various student 
groups will be painting the 
walls with paint furnished by 
the college adndi^rtrattoik. The 
heating sitsstion is und^ in^

considering ping-pong tables, 
pool tables, shuffleboard, and 
perhaps Olher equipment that 
the students desire. Dances will 
continue to be held in the Stu- 
dent Center at regular intej^

Perhaps many people did not 
catch the satire in the letter to 
the Editor entitled "Advice on

phy of public school education t4iat has become dom- 
inant in .this country within the present century -—

the t«M)iei% eerlle««s att# schools oi education. i (||i:ided4o aee lisw I coulfl

Thus, the tenets on which most of o* teacher ^^Telar trYhlrdret 
draining i*fot»ided have been challenged. Basically, i oped a philosophy by associa 
these tenets can be summarized as (1) the belief jtion with good teachers, read- 
that education should recognise each individual as |i.«^^_Jj-«g*^^"tty^^^J^ 
a whole person, (2) the belief that education should yi^e of tl^ "old-hands." 
aOlow'f^U developmeat of each person's unique ca- 
pacities; and (3) the belief that education should 
encourage every individual to make the greatest 
pbssil^e conti-ibution in a democratic society. 

Examinations are not things 
that hiii[)pen only in school. 
They are a recurring feature of 

Mansfield's enrollment has dropped way behind 
that of similar institutions in the state. While 
many factors must be comMeredr iisf ^^scerUia^^ the 
reasons f^ tii^ fact, v^e ntnst bewria niilid l^t over 
the years, our enrollment has remained constant. 
Other State Teachers Colleges have doubled, and in 
a few cases, nearly tripled the numbers of their stu- 
dent body, dfte fault could be our own lack of ex- 

This situation is as peculiar to Mansfield as the 
General State Public School Building Authority^ is 
to I^hnsylvania. Besides our Science Buildiing, this 
Authority is responsible for apprdximately one thous- 
and buildings in the state since its formation in 1947. 

The Authority principle is simple. By selling 
its own bonds, it operates as a separate legal group, 
bypassing &\l Constitu^qnal convention. The! Autii- 
ority in no way involves either the eominonwealth 
or the locid 4i«hoo|;s4istri^t concerned. The money 
from the bonds is used to construct and equip new 
buildings. Long term rent is^then collected from the 
local ^strtct;^l^i1r% %o^%*fean8 iioes il ever coyer 
the full cost of construction. The local district as- 
sumes 25-50 per cent of the total cost which is dis- 
tributed over a period of 40 years. The task of bal- 
ancing this 5^-^5 per cent discrepancy lies with life 
state legislature which in th^ past has bee^!fr^ore 
than generous. 

Pennsylvania ranks first among the 48 states in 
new school construction; MSTC, thus far, ranks near-

Dear Editor: 

Your "Senior Sports Fan" 
seems rather childish. It seems 
to me that this man, using the 
tem loosely, was either iiurt 
by >some truth whid^ the. ^rts 
writers stated sAwut Mm or his 
friends, or else he is too stu- 
pid to realize that the best ath- 
letes are the ones who get the 

I have seen practically every 
home athletic contest that 
Mansfield has taken part in 
this year and J think the ath- 
letes who were responsible for 
the victories are the ones who 
received the honors bestowed 
upon them by thts KLASM-

Dear Editor; 

Everyone makes mistakes 
and the sports staff of this pa- 
per is no exception, but I can 
%ink of not one football play-

"pat on the back*' and didn't 
receive such an honor. It is 
impossible to give every mem- 
ber of any team' , i ' special

because every member of our 
football team did not deserve 
suxih an honor. If Mr. Sports 
Fan would kindly subroit his

For the nextHtew issues of

ilrlll be conoam«d 'WMi our. 
own state; oonoequeBtly, I 

have chosen to eall <iny column 
month, I have chosen to write 
about the Pennsylvania .^Dut^. 
The "Pennsylvania Dutch 

As one travels into the 
southwestern part of our state, 
he passes . thrtni{^ mchr towns 
as Reading, Lancasfer,^ ' yw*, 
Kutztown, and Hambtnrg. 

Although these communities 
look as modern as. a .new auto- 
mobile, it is'liere JJiat weihwl 
glimpses of the past for here 
is the home of the Pennsylvan- 
ia I>utch. When we hear this 
term, we think of people of 
German descent who Uve pri- 
marily by the philosophy of 
the Anabaptists of Sixteenth 
Century Germany, who dress 
in plain clothes, and -who dress 
mostly In black. 

A few years ago, this was 
true, but this is the twentieth 
century, and the people, for 
the most part, dress and act 

A few, maybe one out of ten, 
still follow the customs of 
dress of their ancestors. They 
dress as all of the people did 
35 years ago. A typical CMpM 
would look something as fol- 
lows: the hoiasewife wears a 
high-neck black dress with 
long sleeves and, to complete 
the picture, a pahr-df high but- 
ton shoes. The man of the 
house garbs himself in a black 
wide-brimmed hat, a collarless 
coat and shirt, black , trousers, 
and a pair of high button 
shoes. The children of the 
household are models of the 

Dutch Pride 

In the rolling homeland of 
these people, whether they be 
of the old or new look, are to 
be found some of the best gar- 
dens ever grown. The Quteh* 
man takes much pride in be- 
ing able to boast about the 
quality of his produce. I once 
knew a man from Lancaster 
who drove well «ver one hun- 
dred fifty jniles to get organic 
fertilizer to enrich his soils. 
Strawberries, h i s speciality, 
were some of the largest and 
best tas^. I have ever, eaten. 

The DutShioian is equally 
proud of his farm. He cares 
for his cows and horses with 
as much love as he shows for 
his children. His barn Is as 
clean as the day it was built, 
and because he likes bright 
colors, it is always newly paint- 
ed. " ■ 
Put The Hax On 

The Hex Sign, once associ- 
ated with the Dutchman as his 
way to keep the evil spirits 
away, still appears on some of 
the barns. Today it is there for 
a different purpose; aS the 
Dutchman vould say it, *'ciuist 
for nice." 

The Dv^eh housewife, toO) 
is a very metictdous person. 
She keeps her house in apple 

pie order at all times. It is

"Don't go away not yet."

A few years ago. I was visit- 
ing in this area, and at a small 
town, I bought a pair of shoes 
that I especially liked. When I 
had -paid the lady, she asked, 
"Shall 1 put them in a toot, or 
will you take them so?" This 
was just her way of asking, 
VjShall I put them in s'sack 4»r 
do you to JwaMT theitt?" 

The Pennsylvania-Dutch have 
long realized that their Ian- ■ 
guage is a goldmine of humor, 
and they have used it to good 
advantage with such 'gents 
"My off is all." (My vacation 
is over.) This celebrated note 
was allegedly pinned to a 
doorbell in ICutztown: "Bump

Strange Customs

toms that to the outsider seem 
odd but to the Dutchman .are 
as common as the grass in his 
meadow. One such custom i»r .

when there is an eligible un--

his letter was written before 
the season was hardly under-

out just one thing. Last month's 
Issue featured Bon Firestone 
and Al Zyga. I have just rc: 
turned from seeing the Roch- 
ester Tech. game, and I do not 
know who deserved niore cred- 
it than Firestone and Zyga. 
Firestone ran the ball club and 
poured in 20 points. Zyga did 
more than his share of re- 
bounding, and converted 10 for 
11 fouls and 3 for 3 field goals 
for 16 points. Do you really 
think they deserved the write- 
ups? Of course they did not 
win the game alone. Others do 
deserve credit but, th«fe are 
four Flashlights yet to ^ be 
printed this year, and the 
Other boys, unless they QUIT, 
will undoubtedly relceive the 
honors they earn.

M&jQsfteld. Pe?insylvanla, FEBRtTARY, 1958 


My B^ecollecdon^^o^ 

4t iiras hi Ifae file sumin oi 
1937 that my piureiits moved to 
Mansfield. Joseph F. Noonan 
was president of Mansfield 
State Teachers College at that 
time, and Arthur T. Belknap 
was dean of instruction. At the 
beginning of the new academic 
year in Septembw; father 
aasumed his position as instruc- 
tor. iBJ»i0logy^«t the college. 

The Mamfleid Advertiser 
Bpoke of my father as having 
"one SRudl son." That son was 
tQ -grow! up in Mansfield, to 
«l1^d the public schools of 
the town, and eventually to 
attend Mansfield State Teach- 
ers College for four years. L 
•llHMursf, was that son. 

ifc^ inetnory of this college 
thus extends back much farther 
than do the memories of most 
of the students at Mansfield 
today. Perhaps, my earliest rec- 
ollection of anything on the 
cjunpus is of the kindergarten 
room of the Elementary School 
in 1941. I can still remember 
the good times that we had in 
that rodm, and I can remember 
our teacher, Miss Scott. 

Elenwntary School 

For seven years, until the 
spring of 1948, I was a pi^iil 
in jthe ^Campus Elementary 
School. The building, which was 
quitie new then, had much the 
same appearance that it has 
today. Dr. George Retan was 
Director of Campus Schools 
throughout this period, and he 
had his office in the building 
that Dr. Wilson now occupies. 
Four of my supen;isors during 
those years are still 4t the col- 
lege, and three of these are 
still in the Elementary School. 

■in»n, as now, there ^ere 
student teachers from the 
Music- iind Elementary Depart- 
ments,, and for many of them 
I felt a real admiration. To me, 
^ihere seemed to. be nothing 
unnatur^. in having teaching 
rdivide^ -between' supervisors 
and student teachers. 

The grade school children 
saw a good deal of the rest of] 
the college in those years. Once 
at Christmas time, the children 
in our room went over to North 
Hall to see the decorated wells. 
On another occasion — was in 
the first grade then — ^we ^visited 
an assembly in Straughn Hall, 
'an4 I had a look at President 
Willis E. Pntt standing on the 
stage. That vras only a ffew 
months before Dr. Pratt was 
succeeded by James C. Morgan 
as president. 

The Education Center, which 
had been the Model School, 
was still occasionally used by 
the Elementary School even in 
my time. Once, while I was 
in the sixth grade, we went 
over* to that building and play- 
ed basketball in what is now 
the audio-visual room. 

The campus schools contrib- 
uted ij^quontly t^to college «8- 
semld^c. An annual custom was 
thie presentation of an all-El- 
ementary School music pro- 
gram, in which each class took 
its turn in singing under its 
own student teacher. I don't 
know how much the college 
students enjoyed our perform- 
Mclti but we considered the 
prograniB to be gceat eventa. 
OM i ala ma ^ l^ lldif 

The science department at 
the college was, It that time, 
housed in the ^temporary**

I can still see the biology 
laboratcM-y, where ray father 
worked, as it appea|rj^^.,t|ien: 
the large bird calenc^:^^ the 
wall, the skeleton toiVard the 
front of the room, the long 
tables where the students sat. 
And I recall the many times 
that I went up from the ^U- 
mentary School to eat lunch 
with my father in liis littie 
book-laden office. 
Swimming in the Pool 

The swimming pool -really 
was used for swimming once. 
My earliest recollectibn of that 
pool is of one evening fifteen 
or more years ago when it was 
filled with college students. In 
later years, the pool was used 
by faculty children, including 
me, during the summer. Many 
are the enjoyable hours that 
we jspeht there. * I 
Tha Old Library 

I was a rather frequent visi- 
tor to the College Library in 
tike days when it was located , 
in Uie old South Hall. Ilie li-i 
jMniry occupied a spacious room \ 
on tile first floor of the build- 
ing, as it had for half a cen- 
tury. Still clear in my memory : 
are . the positions of the main j 
.desk, the big dictionary and' 
the tables around it, the news-j 
paper stand, the magazine rack, 
and the children's section. I 
Fruned pictures hung from the 
walls, including one showing 
the Normal School principals 
between 1862 and 1912. 
Junior High School 

Life in the Campus Junior; 
High School began for me in' 
September, 1948. As a present 
siuueni leicacp, iront^s^r mac ; 
the building has scarcely chang* ! 
ed since the period when 7! ! 
was a pupil there; it doesn't 1 
seem even to have aged. • i 
' Many^ the junicMr hi^i 
school supervisors of that day 
have since left college, How-.; 
ever, my three homeroom su- 
pervisors — ^Miss Conson (the 
present Mrs. Reese) in the sev- 1 
enth grade, Mr. Wilson (now| 
Dr. Wilson) in the eighth grade, 
and Dr. Mutchler in the ninth 
grade — are at Majisfield today. 
Changes on tho Campus | 

While I was in junior highj 
school, the old Science Building 
and the old South Hall were 
torn down. It is the demolition, 
of the tottir ^^iHit^^^ iMide the ; 
greater impression in my mind. | 
I remember how the old dorm-i 
itory stood gloomily with a 
"no trespassing" . sign on the 
front while the rooms within! 
were being stripped of their j 
furnishings. Soon, men were^ 
ciawling over the structure, 
tearing off the roof and chip-, 
ping at the bricks. Eventually, i 
South Hall was gone complete-! 
ly, and I was able to look, 
through the torn up area where ' 
it had been to see Alumni Hall 
standing beyond. It lo^ed ra- 
ther alone. 

Destruction gave way to con- 
struction, however, and new, 
nmdern structures rose where 
the old ones had been. It 
a ttarilt to walk through the 
mm Science Building for the 
first time, even though the ta- 
bles, auditorium seats, and 
other equipment were yet to 
arrive. When this buildins and 

the present men's dormitory 

were finally completed, the 
campus had become substan- 
tially what it was when I en- 
tered the college as a student 
in 1954. 

Numerous Other Memories 

There are many other things 
connected with this college 
during my earlier years that 
I ciin remember wrtH: <k»m- 
mencements, faculty picnics, 
May Day programs, band and 
orchestra concerts, and College 
Players' presentations. As my 
gradimtion ap p r oa d i es after 
twenty years of living in Mans- 
field and fourteen years of ed- 
ucation on this campus, these 
experiences come flooding back

Longfellow, Hiawatha 

To this day it is a matter of 
controversy whether Robin 
Hood really existed or whether 
he is merely a creation of Eng- 
lish imagination. As late as 
1944, a circumstantial account 
published in "Archery News" 
claims that Robin was born in 
Wakefield. England, late in the 
thirteenth century. The article 
claims that the reasons for 
Robin's outlawing lie in the 
Battle of Boroughbridge. 
where it is said that he fought 
against Edward H. Robin is 
then supposed to have taken 
refuge in the Forest of Barns- 
dale (not Sherwood) and there 
performed the exploits for 
which he is now famous. 

This may be so, but it is 
also possible that In' %n age 
of illiteracy, of rigid privilege 
and social unrest, the story of 
Robin Hood grew out of the 
minds of tlfe common people; 
If this be so, then Robin Hood 
is only a peg on which to hang 
all the tales and legends of 
English outlawry. 
Archanfc Infiuanca 
» While this question may 
never be settled, we can not 
help but feel the influence of 
England's bow-and arrow per- 
iod. Archery, as an everyday 
thing, has been dead some 
three or four hundred years, 
but many expressions and 
proverbs still live on. 

Hlfh strung. An archer's 
bow is high strung when the 
string is farther away from the 
hand grip than is. usual. The 
bow fornu greater than 
normal areit and. is much mora 
sensitive, due to the Increased 

Straight aa an arrow is ^eill- 
explanatory. ' 

Tho arrow often hits 
shootar. This formerly indica- 
ted a faulty arrow which might 
break and injure the archer's 
hand. Modern usage wanis 
against laying traps or direct- 
ing unkindnete' towaiis _ijni^ 


(The following is, a report on 
an article which appeared in 
the December 21 issue of School 
and Sociaty. It was entitled 
'The Habeas Corpus of The 
American Child" by Earnest 
Harms. This, then, is my opin- 
ion on his work. Do you agree 
or disagree?) 

The author of this article re 
ports the fact that the Sup- 
reme Court', had upheld a 
teacher who had used 'Hhe 
most inhuman corporal pun- 
ishment" on one of his stu- 
dents. He fears the "danger 
that school gates will be re- 
opened for disciplinary means 
which Horace Mann, Ameri- 
ca's greatest educational pio- 
neer^ hiC hoped , already in 
ISMiVcbuid vanifdi completely." 
Oisapprovas Authority 

Mr. Harms fears that a re- 
newed authoritarian attitude 
in*^ our public education will 
4eitdt1)ir:faave a negative effect 

a "Quarrel" is a heavy, sharp, 
quadruple headed" arrow, form- 
erly used in archery duels. 

Koap tabs on things. An 
archer must wear a feather 
protector on his fingers for 
protection ^against string and 
arrow burns. This protective 
device is called a "tab". 

Rula of tliutnb. This is an- 
other phrase which has its ori- 
gin in Old English Archery. 
When an archer's bow is 
strung but not drawn — the 
string must be the proper dis- 
tance from the 'Ibelkj^" of the 
hand grip. Tills Is usually mea- 
sured with the archer's thumb, 
and varies with the individual; 
consequently, while not accur- 
ate,.,it suffices, . 

Point blank, remains the most 
vivid example of archery jar- 
gons still in modern usage. An 
arrow has a high trajectory; 
its path is an arc ^th a pro- 
no uncod curvature. The longer 
the range, the higher the aim. 
For short ranges the aim is 

calculation and pract!^; how- 
ever, if the archer is at a dis- 
tance which requires neither 
an above or below aim, his 
shooting is termed — * "point 
blank.-** This directnesi - and 
lack of thought exptaiQf pres- 
ent usage.

problem in some of our high 
schools. On one hand the writ- 
er holds up the ideas of Horace 
Mann which were formulated 
about 118 years ago, as a erit< 
erion for today. He then tells 
us that in 12 years of his life- 
time the whipping stick disap- 
peared. This, by the way. took 
place in . "Central Europe" 
where, we have an enUrely dif- 
ferent type of student than in 
America. Does Mr. Harms 
mean to say that in the case 
of the MrihU>ping stick a change 
was necessary, but if we 
change the policies of Mann, 

times, he cites the fact that ' which originated a century 

in his former school in Cent- 
ral Europe, a whipping stick was 
used, but that 4t disappeared 
by the time he had completed 
school twelve years later. "A 
basic change in educational 
concepts had taken place." he 

The author proposes that a 
good teacher need not use 
corporal punishment, because 
(quote, Horace MannX he has 
the abihty to *'eoBdhi^/ and 
direct his task." 
Nood For Low 

Mr. Harms says that this is 
a matter of concern to the 
"social and ethicri ststos'* of 
this nation, and then ^proposes 
that "we need a federal law 
enacted which makes it a 
misdemeanor- to apply corporal 
punishment againat any Ameri- 
can child Ui any American 

I am inclined to doubt that 
the American Supreme <^Court 
would be Hoodwinked 4 by a 
teach«»^ who had applied "in- 
human, corporal , punishment^

much if "inhuman" is- the word

^'A good teacher — ^Horace

non-punative abilities to 'con- 
duct and direct" his task. To- 
day we are told by our psy-

not want to learn, he will not 
learn. In some larger cities not

Personal Comment 
Granted that the color scheme 
dees not exactly coincide with 
MT' Rencetic's color wheel, I 
do leel that much has been 
done in reclaiming a so-called 
"lost cause." Although the pro- 
ject has been deemed "wprth- 
wbij^e" and "a n^nble student

done before the original plan

Women's fashions always 
seem to be a controversial sub- 
ject; no one designer agrees 
with any other designer oh 
styles. In a way this is conven- 
ient for a woman, because she 
can wear almost anything and 
still be ia atyle. Maybe some- 
day, .a great maatermind of 
fashions will appear and com- 
pletely change everything — 
who knows, it may be one of 
you. By the way fellows, never

lege Dining Room, ^na, Joan-

Joanne - no fair holding out 
on the pretzetsi 



, . There were some interesting 
comments thrown around at 
the All-Sports Banquet the 
other night. Sotiwr mfgMt be 
worth repeating. 

In the younger days of the 
college, Mansfield was ap- 
parently one of the sports 
powers of the Bfest. Football 
firsts at Mansfield included 

' the ftt-st night game (which in- 
cidentally had to be called at 
the half because of power fail- 
ure) and the first football 
serimmage with another team. 
Severar \Mi-Ahiertcaiis began 
their careers at Mansfield and 
did great things at other in- 
stitutions. These were the 
days when Mansfield was a two 
year normal school The foot- 
ball teams in those days were 
as good as any and chalked up 
victories over such present-day 
powers as West . Chester, Uni- 

• versity of Pennsylvania, P6nn 
Stlte, and Bucknell. These grid 
squads were responsible for 
the ^first State Championships 
ever to come to Mansfield. 

The basketball squads in 
those days weren't too bad 
either. The teams played a 
three-way schedule under 
throe different sets of rules. 
They played YMCA teams and 
semi-pro teams as well as other 
college opponents. There was a 
game played in the Harrisburg 
Armory for the Pennsylvania 
State Championship in which 
Mr. Marvin of the present fac- 
ulty p«rticip»ted/ Mansfield 
won this game- and ^ champ- 
ionship by soundly thrashing a 
supposedly strong West Chest- 
er Normal School. 
Since "4he good old days ' 

",^^ver, Mansfield hasn't had 

:^t«»e aiuch to brag about. (With 
'the exception of the fine foot- 
bflU team of 19484V0 

Reasons for the recent sports 
failimes at Mansfield were also 
cdtaiRiented upen. The fwtors 
^ contritioting to f ailurW at 
Mansfield were also commented 
upon. The factors contributing 
■ to failure seemed to fall into 
five distinct cate^fories. And 
. vnUi bigger and tougher sched- 
uler tieing arranged in all 
^^fK)rts in the future years, 
.the s e contcibuting factors 
, i^sd^ '4)e iiteinited. the 
Avis reasons given, the one most 
often expressed was the calibre 
of athletfes usually coming to 
Mansfield. Another important 
i^tttation concents tlie inade- 
quate coaching staff; the other 
cdiitfUWiting* causes being 
school spirit, money, and tradi- 
tion or emotional attitude. 

The general calibre of our 
athletes is obviously below 
average. Other colleges seem 
mwe attractive or just beat 
Mansfield to the punch when 
recruiting material. There are 
many good and fine athletes at 

^ other colleges getting far less 
a asto ia naa timi the beys we 
have on athletic waiterships. 
What Mansfield needs in this 
area is a salesman or salesmen 
to sell better than average ath- 
letes- on tke ictea off comii^ to 
Mansfield. This selling is not a 
one man job — it requires the 
concerted efforts of all people 

, int'M'ested in the success of 
Mansfield. Alumni, especially, 
are in position to help in this 
way. Good athletes are made in 
high schools, not in colleges. 
And it is in high schools where 
most of Mansfield alulnni are 
located. The alumni,' however, 
are not solely responsible for the 
aquisition of good ball players. 
There must be a system within 
our athletic department set up 
specifically for the purpose of 

obtaining talent. There should , 

be a choice of players instead I 
qI. talrinfl left^isers:. ' 

Of alt the colleges in the 

United States, ours probably 
has the most inadequate coach- 
ing staff in every major sport. 
A national Qmrts or^ recent- 
ly stated that college football 
coaching staffs consist of "from 
twenty coaches to three with 
an average college expei^Miee' 
of five years.? We have one 
coach with three years college 
experience and all of that 
gained right here at Mansfield. 
"Basketball," the weekly publi- 
eation stated, "usiully ranges 
from five eoadies to one with 
average collegiate experience 
of 6.4 years of overall coaching 
experience of 10.6 years." We 
have the muumum of one ooaeh 
with only two years of college 
experience and five years of 
overall experience. Baseball Jils 
into the same oid:^H>ry- Otu* 
coaches bsve wcn4ied hard and 
long in an attempt to improve 
athletics. They have succeeded ^ 
to some degree but must ac- 
cept their share of responsi- 
bilit3^ for the showing of their 
respective s^sads. To o\^ 
come this deficiency, we need to 
add to our present coaching 
staff men with Icaow-how and 
experience. School spirit is an- 
other Ihng which nwdd a great 
deal of improvement if we are 
to have athletic success. Our 
stu dents , ;niigt unite into a sol- 
id, mass support and go out 
of thetrway \tr give a little ex- 
tra. There has been, without 
doubt, some improvement in 
getting behind the team. The 
recent Look Haven football 
game showed what could be 
done. Our cheerleaders need 
to indoctrinate incoming fresh- 
men more thoroughly in our 
cheors and songs» aiid ever;

Instilled with college spirits, 
valuable data, pep talks, and 
grim facts, three MSTC instruc- 
tors journeyed to Bemddc High 
School to observe College Car- 
eer Day. 

Fred Jupenlaz, Miaa Hel^iti 
Spiyder and Dr. Benjamin Hu- 
sted, representing the college 
as well as the individual de- 
partments, arrived on Wednes- 
day, February 12, at Berwick, 
Pa. . They were greeted by F. 
Le^s Lang, Guidance Director 
of the Berwick High School, 
and 39 high school students 
interested in atteii^v Ktast- 
field's institution. 

Assombly and Conferences 

The day's activities began 
at 8:30 a. m. with a general 
assembly iwogram which luted 
about one hour. Attendance 
was required. 

Following the assen^y Uiere 
were three conference peiiods 
of one-half 'hour each, «iid a 

field is now ranked as thit 
teenth of the fourteen State 
Teachers CoUeges» with Cbey- 
ney in bottom p<Mdtion.'~ Our 
most important task is carrying 
the name of MSTC into all areas 
of the state so as to help in- 
crease the enrollment. > 

At the present there are 
over one hundred sixty appli- 
cations for September admis- 
sion. The freshman class of 
next year may ntimber close to 
three hunted,' approxhAateiy 
one hundred more than that 
of this year. By 1961, Dr. Rath 
geber is hoping for an enroll- 
ment of one tiiousand, three 
hundred more than at ivesent. 
This increased enrollment 
would magnify the economy of 
Mansfield, both the COll^e and 
the town. 
Cooperation Uvfed 

However, when this does od- 
cur, there must be town and 
college cooperation. In order 
for this to be possible,. Dr. Rath- 
geber suggested havteg resi- 
dents of the town serve on col- 
lege committees dealing with 
those matters in which the town 
is interested, .and develomng 
a' committee on college-com- 
munity relationsv 

Nevertheless, with an in- 
creased enrollment, the prob- 
lem of accommodations ap- 
pears. There would be need for 
more instru^rs, new build- 
ings, and repairs to the present 
buildings. Dr. Rathgeber has 
already introduced bills for the 
acquirement of several of these.

Speaks at Colleie 

Jacob E. G. Dentu of Gharia, 
Africa, was a guest of the col- 
lege from January 30 to F<^ 
ruary 2. 

Mr. Dentu was sponsored by 
the Student Christian Associa- 
tion in accordance with their 
aim to bring at least one fore- 
ign student a year to this cam- 

Stresses Need for Peace 

Mr. Dentu was the guest 
speaker at the regular SCA 
meeting on January 30. His top- 
ic was "What • the Individual 
Can Do For World Peace " In 
his speech, he stated these 
points as possible solutions 
to a more peaceful world: 

(1) Learn both sides of nat- 
ional and international affairs. 

(2) Express your ideas and 
opinions. Write to your leaders 
and coa^asmen. (3) Eocour^ 
age your government to give 
economic, not military, aid to 
other countries through the 
United Nations with no strings 
attached. (4) Pray for peace. 

Following the SCA meetimr* 
the students and faculty mem- 
bers attending the meeting had 
a chance to meet and talk to 
Mr. Dentu on an infermal basis 
at an open house at the home 
of Dr. Mary Heltibridle. 

During his s^y, Mr. Dentu 
visited and talked in several 
classrooms in the campus 
schools, the high school, and 
the college. He also presided 
at informal buzz sessions here 
on campus. 

A junior at Pennsylvania 
State University, he is in this 
country on a scholarship from 
his government of Ghana. He 
expressed his hopes of getting 
his master's degree before he 
rettime tioUiis'own country. 
'Moro Math Needed' 

In the informal buzz sessions, 
Mr Dentu expressed his views 
on many subjects. Concerning 
educliH«f in the^ United States, 
he said that the U. S. system 
of educating the masses is 
good. However, the student

To PCl.ilfleet|ngs 

Dr. Harry E. Earlley, Dean 
of liastruetioQ^ recently an- 
nounced the courses which will 
be offered in MSTC summer 
sessions this year. He also ofut* 
Kned Uie iW i iMM for the of- 
fering of these courses. 

The courses offered will be 
Iwsed on two priorities: (1) 
bourses that are needed by 
MSTC's four-year students or 
in-service teachers who can be 
' iisidttatod by May of 1989," and 
C2) courses for Which there is 

reasonable assurance that there 
are a sulScieot number of stu- 
dents to pay the salaries of 
summer " sesiiions' instructors. 

Dean Earlley said that the 
administration is interested in 
making additions to summer 
sessions' offerings in any area 
where there is sufficient de- 
mand to warrant its being of- 

To Interest Four Groups 

Summer sessions will be of 
particular interest to four main 
#^ups of students: (1) those 
%ho are intelrested in being 
graduated in less than four 
years, (2) those who entered 
at mid-year or have had to 
witfitfraw for a period of time 
and wish to become regular, 
(3) those who are interested 
in taking courses that are not 
available to them because of 
the demands of the curriculm 
they are following, and (4) 
those interested in repeating 
work in which they have earn- 
ed failing grades. 

The schedule of courses 
which will be offered can be 
seen in the . Dean of Instruc- 
tion's office. 

' The pre-session will last from 
June 9 ta June 20, the main 
sesiioA from June 24 to Aug- 
ust l/and the po6t<ieisfon from 
August 4 to August 22. 

The choraif program will con- 
sist of music from the Baroque 
period, late I9th Century 
French compositions, including 
the complete choral .works of 
Claude Debussey; and various 
20th Century choral master- 
works. Aside from a capella 
singing the chorus will be ac- 
companied by small instrumen 
tal ensembles, piano, and or- 

Preliminary rehearsals of the 
organiutions participating are 
under the supervision of their 
usual directors. Eugene Jones

Mansfield. Pennsylvania. MARCH, 1IW8 

THE FI«^EBp4Cr^ 

Oiite upon a time there was a student who had 
Bome worit to do. Now the atmosphere in the dorm 
wasn't too peaceful, and it being National Library 
W«ek (M«*ch 46-22). the little student decided to 
make use of what little faeiliti^ we)?e available to 
biiRN^t Mansfield. " ' , " 

So, early one night he set out through the^ 
parking lot on his first \)ig trip to the library. 

When he reached the eensy-weensy library, he 
tried the door, but it jvas locked. Now this made 
the. little student wonder,-f or he had been told that 
the entire social calendar was geared to 6:45 p.m., 
and here it was that hour but the libraty was not 
apen. The little student was disturbed, and when he 
looked at the hours of operation, he fairly blew his 
top. 7:301 Biit they've been closed since 4:46! So 
the little student walked slowly back to his room, 
wondering how the librarians' union had been able 
to swing *'d««Wike that. ^ 

^ Glasses filled up the majoj^ of the little stu- 
dent's day, and he didn't get a chance to go to the 
lilmil'y uwHl the next night and then he was hustled 
out of the library after only ari hour and one-half 
>wrhen he waa in the midst of hia research. And so 
it went, with the little irtudent spending only three 
)u>urs4n the library during National Library Week — 
Jtod- not because he wanted to do it that way. 

. • ' . ^ ^ ' 

Of course, all of this set the little student to 
wondering. "Why isn't the library open for more 
iiours than it is? We have to do research, take 
no^s, Yewtt'^l^freuirh reserve books, etc., -all in such a 
abort time. Gosh, if they opened a half hoiir earlier 
and closed an hour later,' a fella' might be able to 
.tfet aemething done, ^hd how abDIit Saturday after- 
noon? I have classes the entire morning, and when 
the afternoon is free, very conveniently the library 
is closed. And on Sunday, if you rush out from din- 
ner, undress while running across the parking lot,' 
ancl speed back to North HaU> you can spend the 
bnetter iiart of two solid hours eurrounded by books. 
Gee, it's'hardly worth having a-library' if you can't 
nee it wh*n you*d like to, or in many rush cases, 

Now the little student wasn^t a dunce by any 
means. He realized that the staff of the library was 
inadequate although completely competent. But 
could more students be hired to aiiff "He thought 
that many would welcome the chance for enaplay- 
laent And he Imew that in the near future thou- 
MMlsiol doikcv 'ffwulA J9e spent for an entire new 
Jtteary^K'jbMt' he-waa worried >about the- pi^'nt. 

The little student, therefore, could not live hap- 
Hily ever after, nor did hsu ttok that others would 
Teitticr. ^He thought that pMimps only a few might 
tulre advantage of the lengthened hours if th«jf did 
come about, but then he- remembered* aometiltoc He 
had read reeently 'about those few: V 

"They are, as they have always been, those who 
WrtilKe the flickering flame of culture. ; . and no 
jnt fi M i i yet devised tells in advance who ahall come

Dear Dditor: 

In one of our freshmen speech 
classes we talked about the 
needs of our college. During 
«ur discustions problems coo- 
cetned.,^^ the ai!$ral<y ^om. 
Mafl^^ of these problems could 
not be easily remedied. How- 
ever, one ^^piHrttnt phase of 
this problem, in ray opinion, 
couid- and should be consider- 
ed; that is the limited, library 

H^ny of us have classes all 
day with' very few chances to 
utilize the library until after- 
dinner. This proves very un- 
fortunate, since we then have 
only an hour and a half from 
opening time, 7:30 p.m. to clos- 
ing time, 9 p.m., in which to 
study. During this time *i|b cer- 
tainly can, do veiry Uttle re- 
search in reference books or in 
reserve books. Often we also 
need a quiet |4«ee tO go for 
studying when our "dorms" are 
not as quiet as they should be. 
Our present short evening libr- 
ary hours do not give us time 
to do much more than to begin 
our study and then have it dis* 
rupted by the library's closing 

It seems to me, as it seemed 
to manyjoth^/meni^s of wr 
class, that an «ddMon«l can- 
ing hour or more should be 
obtained for the benefit of 
those who need to use the li- 
brary at this time. Perhaps 
this convenience would «1m 
give as g re ate r incen tive to 
read and study more than we 
do at tlw ipBesent ttiRe. Library 
ht>lllrs of 7 p.m. -to ' 9^«0 or 10 
p.m. would help greatly in

Simes? Those of us who are 
unfortunate enough to have 
elasceo .at 4 pvm. hod to pay 
the Activities Fees, yet, we 
couldn't see the game. 

That's the only foiae on our 
campus I missed. THe same 
thing will barppen during base- 
ball season when those of us 
iyha;>lM¥e -4 ^mv. daises will

While on the^ubject of the 
games here at MSTC, could we 
have liUO's - on Bights of bas- 
ketball games, durine. the week? 
After the last .«ihie everyone 
was thrilled about winning. 
Oiv team did a snaX job, and 
where did we girls go after the

only people who / make any 
noise during the game are the 
kids who sit right across from 
the;MSTC team. Thes^ ^wds sit 
there every game and cheer 
their hearts < out while ewryorte 
6lse looks around. Durhig the 
last- game a few move people 
joined in, but not until it look- 
ed certain that we would win. 
They can all call the felloMrs 
names for not making a shot 
but when he -does, they 'don't 
say much of anythki(. Before 
emlifig this. Fd like to say that 
if the cheerleaders had as 
much pep as the band, we 
would really have some action 
on the floor. I think the band

A l^orth HaU Resideht 

Wii A Ssde 

Service with a smile— that is the .motto of our 
-dining room waiters here at Mansfield. In appre^ 
elation of their untiring, efforts — ^for which they 
receive no tips — we would like to extend to theni 
some tips of a different nature. 

1. Keep urging the occupants of your tables 
eat with^peed. After all, you^are onlyxgetting palii 
lor an hour a night, «o Why woffc mifiutes when 
you oould be done in 20? 

2. Tf the people, at your table refuse to hurry, 
you might employ the following effective ^deviee. 
Wlidn they «Bk you for seconds, walk out to the 
kittihen, visit with the other waiters for a few^ min- 
ittes, and return to your table reporting taat no sec- 
onds are available. 

8 If your ^*tadWe*' tfkialjy '^catcl^ to that 
scheme and insists that you biing^ more food, you 
must oblige. However, if you serve the food grac- 
iously, they may desire to have you repeat the court- 
esy again. Therefore, you must use a different man- 
ner. For a bhHaffe, throw the dishes on the table, 
spill water on the people who ask for refills, and be 
sure that you remove their plates before they are 
Hi^had eating their meal. 

4. If the students still insist on taking their time, 
try breakii^ diahes. If you break enough often 
enough, the authorities will be forced to proclaim 
cafeteria every evening. Then you can go back to 
a life of luxury — sitting in a chair drawing ' little 
cireles on a sheet df paper, clearing tablearOf oceaa- 
ional milk bottles, and drawing straws to see who 
is privileged to remove the trays from an enpty table. 

5. Another, resort is one which is nfltt ao obvious. 
Watch the "slow polkas" ^afc lj^ii^ »^ 

just stare! * 

6. If they apply the "monkey see; monkey do'* 
routine by staring at you in return, give them some- 
thing interesting at w'hich to look. Don't wear a 
olean waiter's jacket; liven it up with some gravy 
or beet juice. Remember that your job isn't class- 
ified as a "white collar" job, stJ be sure that your 
collars are anything but white. (Dirty grey will Suf- 
fice.) • , - 

7. To add more color to the white of the table- 
cloth, spill food here and there to brea^ the mpno- 
tony. (Remember your Introduction to Art class.) 

If you will follow these simple instructions, 
your job will become one of del^t ra^er Uiaa 
drudgery. ^ •

Mall Bex Was instituted. I should think that anyone, «iven a 
ehance to express his views without revoalina his identity, 
would be glad to take advantage of the opportunity. However 
we receive only two or three letters per month for publicatioh. 
This represents about .3% of the total student population — 
surprisingly low when you figuie that approximately 98% have 
gripes. Such indfflerence is diffleult to comprtlheinL It seems

The K?)rean GI home loan 
hill which evpired in February 
1956, has recently- been revisec 
to allow more home loans. The 
new inteFest schedule for 
Peimsylvaiua allows a 4.5 per 
cent interesT~'charge in trans 
actions H^ei^ • the down pay 
ment is lest than 10 per cent, 
and a straight 4 per cent charge 
if the down payment is niore 
than 10 percent ol the total 

This action is the result of 
a recent slump in GI home 
loan applications and^ows an 
urgency that may be connected 
with the general easing in the 
US money market currently 
termed as a recession. 

Some statistics, concerning 
tllie current GI trainuig Jail

He emphasized' that during 
the first seven months^of 1957- 
58 the Mansfield students had 
shown . a great ' readiness and 
maturity in solving their own 
problmis. This was illustrated 
\^ the increase in Activities 
Rree the painting of the Stu- 
dent CenteTi the addition to the 
"Hut," and above all eJse^ the 
tremendous wave of student 
spirit and interest in the wel- 
fare of Mansft^ld. 

Otitllnea. Seven Projects 

Dr. Rathgeb^ then suggest- 
ed seven areas ahd iMrojects in 
which the Student Council and 
the student body might be in- 

He stated that he thoiight the 
time should come soon when 
the students assumed greater 
control oveT their own finances. 
He suggested monthly filoancial 
i*epOrts of the Activity Fund 
and said, "I would like to get 
out of the check-signing busin- 
ess and hope to turn it over 
to next year's Council presi- 
dent, Mr. Kreamer!" 

Hia 4)ext s«irgo<«tioii 
was a review of the Student 
Council Constitution. This Ts 
significant since the Faculty As- 
sociation 4s presently working 
on its Constitution, 

He strongly stressed that stu 
dents should attend more con 
ferences, pointing out that 
"We might give some thought 
to holding a student conference 
here at Mansfield since Robert 
Kloss represents the Pennsyl 
vania State Teachers Colleges 
on the Executive Board Of the 
Columbia Scholastic Press As 
sociation." He* referred to bis 
convocation address in .which 
he suggested that both faculty 
and students have an opportun- 
ity to travel to profesiiooal 
meetings and conltoeocei. ' 

Dr. Rathgeber .than indicat

to why 10 p.m. was the chosen

a 2 ajn. permission for the 
Ju^or-Senior Ball could be 
worthwhile, as would blanket 
11 o'docks for nights on which

His final three suggestions 
were that more emphMis

Scene: The ofBce of Dr*. 
Woolis Greatwrather, presi- 
dent of Feld0\ann's State t^e- 
attires College. Dr. Greatwrath- 
er is interviewing Mr. Itenry 
Savant, prospective professor. 

Dr. G.: So, Mr. Savant, you 
think that you are qualified to 
teach here at Feldmann's, do 

Mr, No I don't, -sir. 
- That% ^tuetly why I applied 
for m 1^, I understood that 
competence was not manda- 

Dr. G: Very true. However, 
certain other requirements per- 
taining to dress, etc. must be 
met. I have already noticed 
that your manner of dress is 
quite in keeping with that of 
the profession. 

Mr. S.: Yes sir. I make it a 
habit to keep out of style. Fm 
proud to say that I own two 
jackets and two piiirs of trous- 
ers and nothing matches any- 
thiif^g else. How do you like 
what I have on, sir? 

Dr. G.: Excellent!. A double 
breasted green pin*stripe jack^ 
et and a pair of powder-l^ue 
trousers. But your tie, Savant, 
something must be done about 
that. The^^design is ingenious 
— a purple swordfish leaping 
«veir a garbage scow at sunset 
— and . t^e tie-clasp is in ^ta 
propeir position-^ne inch be- 
low the knot — ^but. Savant, the 
tie is not stained, and the ends 

Mr. S.: rm sorry, 'sir, that 
won't happen again. I dressed 
rather hurriedly today and 
sUsfed up. (Grovels at feet of 
preindent.); . 

Dr^ G.: Fine, boy, Tm glad 
to hear that. There's nd room 
fiH^ Beau Brummels here at 
Feldmaim's, you know. Now let 
me get back to this check list. 
Hmmm. Cuffs. . ,. frayed. Ex- 
cellent. If your wife has a 
diQcult tim^ keeping them in 
that condition, me have a laun- 
dry here that will gladly oblige. 
Trouser knees. . . baggy. Per- 
fect. What a beautiful bag! H 
it wouldn't be giving sway a 
trade secret, how do J^ou mian- 
age to achieve that effect, my 

Mr; S.: It's really quite sim- 
ple, sir. I place a bowling ball 
in each knee prioxL4;o bed each 
evening and suspend the trous- 
ers between two chairs during 
the Qights In, the morning all I 
hMve tO; 'd)^ is\ shine the seat 
of my lrpuaers and Fm ready 
to go. Have you noticed my 
shpev. 8irt-'==ii^ t bit of shine. 
There's a gravel pit beside our 
house that I run through twice 
daily before class. It really 
does the trick, doesn't it? 

Dr. rU say! ir« diffieult 
to find ways, I know. I just 
bought a new pair, and Fve 
had to sandpaper them to get 
them intq shape> ,As . Hamlet 
said, "For the apparel off ih'o- 
tdaims the man." 

Mr. ,S.: Ah, excuse me, sir, 
but I think you'll find that 
It was Bolonius that said that. 

6: Fm^ quite certain that 
it was Hamlet, Savant. 

Mr. S.: But su*, in act I, 
scene HI, Polonius is speaking 

Dtw itirwant, you want a 
Job here, do you not? 

Mr. S.: Oh! Yes, sir. Won- 
derful lines, aren*t they, sir? 
Hamlet certainly said « mouUi- 
ful, didn*t h%? 

Dr. G.: We're going to get 

jiong fine. Savant. Bv tho way, 
^*1iat's yoiur political atiiliatioU? 
Mr. S.:, What's yours, sir? 
Dr. G.: I asked first Savant. 
Mr. S.; No, you first, sir. 
(A coin is flipped and Savant 
wins. The interview continues.) 

Dr. 6.: It says on your ap- 
plication that you want to 
teach history. Are you_ certi- 
fied in that subject? 

Mr. S,i No, isir. But I read 
a book on it once, 

Dr. G.: Good enough. You'lf 
lecture, of eourse. 

Mr. S.: Certainly, sir. As 
you've prdlmbly noticed, I have 
a harelip. Coupled with my 
ability to double-talk in Hun- 
garian, it's a real asset. You'd 
die laughing if you ever watch- 
ed my students try to take 

Dr. G.: I can imagine. Oh, 
to be yonHK' agaiia! I used to 
remove my uppeir plate and 
stuff cotton in my cheeks be- 
fore I began to lecture. Oh, 
those bewildered looks! Of 
course you'll jiave -reqitfred 
readings and terai papers. 

Mr. S.: Most certainly, sir. 
The term paper will be an- 
nouced one day prior to each 
vacation period, ind* will be 
due upon return from the hol- 
iday. And required reading! 
In a Shakespeare course I once 
taught, the class read the 
Bard's complete works. 

Dr. G.: Is that all? For 
shame, Savant! 

Mr. S.: And the second week 
I had them. . . ' 

Dr. G.: Enough said. Excell- 
ent! And your tests? 

Mr. S.: The questions are 
always taken from a textbook 
different from the one we use 
in the course, and, for double 
safety, from the footnotes of 
those volmnes. 

Dr. G.: And your marking 

Mr. S.: I'm happy to say that 
I have none, sir. My curve is 
usiuUy a precipice, and if I 
must, I give' the test papers to 
my four-year-old son who is 
learning his ABC's and let him 
use them as {uractiee sheets. 
Fortunatd^, the child seems 
to have a liking for the letter 
"F". - 

Dr. G.r Savant, you're the 
epitome of college professor- 
ship! The job is yours! 

Mr. S.: Thank you. Dr. Gray- 

Dr. G.: And you can't re- 
member names either. Won- 
derful! Well, come aloiig, boy. 
and meet your colleagues. 
(Puts arm around Savant's 
shoulder and stl^s him to- 
ward lounge.) 

And, as the shine from Mr. 
Savant's trousers fades slowly 
in, the west, we reluctantly bid 
farewell to Feldlhann's, foun- 
tain of knowledge, where even^- 
one go^s to drink.

"The final semester meeting 
of the Athenaeans was held re- 
cently in Alunini Hall. An or- 
gan solo began the program 
and was followed by two vocal 
numbers by Mary Howe. Mary 
has one of the sweetest voices 
in the school and members of 
the club Mfere -particularly de- 
lighted with 'If You Have a 
Sweetheart.' Menvbers then 
joined in the singing of two 

iU^enaeans were those 
belonilng to the Athenaean 
Literary Society, one of the 
leading organizations on the 
Mansfield State Normal School 
cam|>u9 £iw maay years. Thm 
meeting described above took 
place more than three decades 
ago, and the account of^ it was 
originally published in the 
Flashlight for January 17, 1927 
— the oldest issue of the paper 
on file in the College Library. 

A little less than a year be- 
fore that issue was published, 
the first ftpdSer of the Flaah- 
light hitf^f^ared. That was 
on February 6, 1926. It was 
not until November 29, 192d, 
however, that the paper had 
really established itself on a 
permanent basis and become'a 
four page, four^luDim week- 
ly publication. 
Oldest Available Flashlight 

On page pne of the Flash- 
light for January 17, 1927, the 
lead article was headed "LOCK 
work Improves Accurate Shoot- 
ing." It went on to say the fol- 

"The Red and Blacks easily 
beat Lock Haven Normal in a 
one-sided contest on the Cen- 
Ural Nermal's home territory. 
The Lock Haven outfit met a 
superior team in shooting, pas- 
sing and teamwork. Mansfield 
worked every play in their re- 
pertoire, outplaying Lock Hav- 
en to a standstill." 

That the Red and Blacks 
were not always a superiw 
team even .then was evidenced 
by this headline on the other 
side of the page: "RED AND 
Superior Cage Team Wins," 

Among the advertisers on 
page four that week, the fol- 
lowing are particularly worthy 
of note: W. H. Killgore's Auto 
Livery, Vosburg's (iB restaur- 
ant), Cole's Pharmacy, Strait's 
(the. €<Mmer Hardware), Vans- 
field Sanitary Bakery, Fine- 
silver's, and the Cozy Home 
(Wilson's Overnight Inn). 

Also included in this oldest 
available issue of the Flaah- 
lllilit was a photograph of the 
1926 football squad, as well as 
organization articles, several 
columns of news notes, three 
editori^s, some literary pieces, 
and a column called "Awga- 
wan'' (more about it later). 

One of the two leading news 
stories to; tie next iisue, pub- 
lished January 24, is especially 
interesUhg. Headed "J.H.S. 
VS. TEACHERS." it reported 
tJiat the junior high school 
basketball team had played 
the Mansfield Normal team and 
beaten it, 29-18. 

'The heading of the publi- 
cation Is now plain ahd un- 
adM-^ed. It stands f<Hth, pro- 
clauiung to all who even give 
it a glance that it is the Flash- 
light. We believe as a repre- 
sentative paper of a large wide 
awiike aind progressive body of 
students* that the sheet should 
Pgfiei^ this spirit." 

At the top of one column on 
the first page of the Flashlight 
every week appeared the word 
"AWGAWAN." (Accent the 
last syllable.) A few of the bits 
of prose that found their way 
into this column were really 
quite droll, even though we 
might not agree with all of 
their sentiments (or grammar). 
Here are three examples: 

"Maybe Northt Hall is in no 
man's land, but they're in 
jjlumb'' center of Man's field 

"Whfere's those poor dogs 
that used to hang around the 
Normal last year. I don't mean 
the graduates, but those that 
gnawed bones." 

"If you don't know which 
door to take when entering the 
Dean of • Wpqien's office, go 
around the porch and climb 
in the window." . 

A Chang* of Name 

Sometimes, inconspicuous- 
Idoking items in a paper turn 
out to be forerunners of Inajor 
developments. This item ap- 
peared on May 2, 1927: Dr. 
William R.^ Straughn (principal 
of the Normal School) was in 
Harrisburg for a couple of days 
during the early part of last 
week. He reported that the 
possibility of changing the 
name of Mansfield Normal is 
rapidly nearing realisatibn, in 
the near future." 

(By 'September 26, when the 
Flashlliilit published its first 

issue of the new school year, 
Mansfield had become a state 
teachers college, and the "Aw- 
gawan" column exulted, "At 
last we have a real college.") 
New Masth««d 

The front-page masthead ^ 
the January 17 issue had coh- 
sisted of the words "The Flash- 
.light" in neat Old English type. 
A week later, however, that 
had been replaced by the sin- 
gle word "FLASHLIGHT," ex- 
tending across the top of the 
page in Large Roman letters. 
An explanation of the chailge 
was published on January 31: 
DifVlculties in Publishing 

A Flaslilight editor's life was 
not an easy one bade in the 
twenties. There was no Stu- 
dent Activities Fund, and the 
paper had to rely on subscrip* 
tions (about 500) and advertis- 
ing to keep going. There were 
other difficulties, too, as can 
be surmised from- an item in 
"Awgarwan" for January 31, 
1927. ttie publication of a re- 
jected literature sheet had 
been announced the week be- 
fore, but this was now being 
"postponed indefinitely because 
we're not getting any litera« 
ture to reject." 

The Ftashliflht has improved 
iminensely in the 31 years 
sincd then— 'in content, in ap- 
pearance, and in literary style. 
It must not be forgotten, how- 
ever, that the students who 
edited the Flashlight in those 
early days were bringing out 
a weekly newspaper where 
there l^ad been none at all a 
year or two before. They re- 
cognized the deficiencies of 
their work, but they looked 
forward to a better paper 
which they hoped that future 
years and future staffs would 

EKJ Submarine Shop flourishes; 
Sole Student-owned Business 

During the past few months 
several MSTC students .have 

decided to turn business men. 
We are referring, of coiirse, 
to Keith. Waltz, Ellie Martin 
and Jerry Haley, the owners 
and operators of the ''EKJ Sub- 
Shop." The boys have been 
serving their famous 14 in. 
sandwiches to the residents 
and students of Mansfield since 

Jerry Haley, a newcomer to 
MSTC, ts a transfer student 
from Seton Hall where he was 
studying business administra- 
tion. Ellie Martin, a senior 
majoring in English^^ is also 
active in College * Players, a' 
member of Phi Sig fraternity. 

and the Flaahlighli staff. Keith 
Waltz, spending his second 

year at MSTC, is a science ma- 
jor. During the past s)immer, „ 
Keith achieved extra credits 
by attending Lycoming College 
in WiUiaihsport. 

Besides having owners in a 
I business you also must have a 
few employees. Some evening 
you might see Bob Kloss slap- 
ping a sandwich together for 
you to take back to the dorm.

Pennsylvania Epic 

Pennsylvania, lik» all states, 
has much in the way of scen- 
ery. As one drives about the 
state, many things of interest 
are seen. Here and there, nest- 
led quietly m the rolling hills, 
- are her historical landmarks. 

Some of these sites, fourteeln 
in number, are administered 
by the Pennsylvania Historical 
and Museum Society, and still 
7 c*hers ar^ privately owned. Oc- 
casionaRy though, there is a 
new onie that comes into being

, History has it that during 
the French Revolution, several 
prominent French refugees 
met in Philad^ldiia, pooled 
their resources, and bought a 
tract at twenty-four hundred 
acres of land along the Susque> 
hanna ^v^M M¥ua^ ihf prudQ 
tnt towns SF^WfmiBm aMFT^i 

Together, they went to this 
site and established a town. Be- 
cause they were refugees, they 
called their setUemeiit "Azil- 

The town was laid out with 
nine streets east aniS 'llneit and 
crossed by five miming north 
and soutib. The community 
consisted of shops of various 
kinds, a chapel where the ref- 
ugees could worship, and some 
fifty houses to accommodate 
the two hundred men and wq>

As is customary in certain com-

French crown was restored. 
. A special house was erected 
for the Queen and her family. 
It was a mansion in the true 
sense and yas called *^ 
Grande Maison." This huge two 
and a . half story building mea- 
sured eighty-four by sixty feet 
and consisted of fifteen rooms, 
each of which contained a fire- 
place. It is believed to be the 
largest log hotise ever erected 
in the United States. 

Queen Marie ^jaever lived to 
8e« the log house, nor did her 
secret setreat ever reach com- 

So it was, that when Napol- 
eon Bonaparte rose to ii^Hiv^r in 
1803, the little group - made 
their way back to their home- 
land, leaving their settlement 
to be forgotten. In 1840. the 


RMtoratlon Program Started ' 

Nothing happened in the 
little settlement for nearly one 
hundred years, and then, in 
1955, the Bradford County His- 
torical Society launched a long 
range progAmi for the restora- 
tion of the Azilum Mid its 
eventnal possibilities ^r be- 
coming historical center. 

For the- past several years, 
the French Azilum Inc. has 
been operating and conducting 
drives to raise money for this 

Outdoor Pageant 

In 1056, the organization 
presented an outdoor pag- 
eant, "Buckskin and Velvet" 
which re -.enacted the com- 
plete story of Azilum from the 
Revolution until the, time wiven 
the band, of refugees re-enter- 
ed France. It met with success 
the first year and for a time it 
looked as if the project were 
well under wsy. M«iy licunty 
residents gave freely of their 
treasured antiques that the 
buildings might have authentic 
furnishings. The following year 
was i black year for the Azil- 
um. When they tried. to com- 
plete the casting for a second 
presentation of the pageant, 
lack of interest forced them to 
abandon these plans. 

Funds come slowly for this 
kind of fing at dees nroney 
for all projects, but with the 
support of the people who are 
really intM'ested, I feel sure 

A very long time ago, just 
north of India, the little king- 
dom of Iddia lay peaceful and 
unnoticed. The people .of Id- 
dia, the Iddiots. were troubled 
by one thought: if their king 
^ould die there would be no 
one to take his place. What 
would they do with no royal 
id^ot to run the government? 

They thought and thought, 
and finally came up with a 
bright idea. They would con- 
vince the king that he should 
marry. The king consjidered 
i their proposal and agreed that 
it was a fine iddiotic idea. He 
began at once to search for a 
bride. For days and days he 
searched and when he finally 
found his way out of the cas- 
tle, he journeyed into the 

His search was ^ long apd 
fruitless until, at last, he dis- 
covered the beautiful princess 
of Mongolia sitting on the step- 
pes and howling at- the moon. 
It was love at first sight. They 
were married immediately and 
triumphantly returned to Id- 
dia to make their honi^ 

In the following year the 
former princess of Mongolia 
gave birth to a son. He was a 
Mongolian Iddiot, and the king 
was very happy. The kingdom 
of Iddia prospered and when 
the king was killed in a New 
Year's party which, under the 
old calendar took place on Ap- 
ril first, the boy fell heir to 
the throne. He was the first of 
the April fools. Each year, on 
April first, the. good people of 
Iddia threw a party to cele- 
brate the coronation of their 
idling,^ and the day became 
blown as the AprU Fool's Day. 
The peoiH^ played huge pohit- 
less jokes on each other and 
especially on the king, who 
ceuld never figipre them out. He 
just sat in his cage and laughed 
an|i laughed. _ 

The custom of the Iddiotic 
party spread to bordering 
lands and soon the April fool 
was an international hero. His 
mind became even further 
warped with dreams of power, 
so j^e mobilized his forcessy 
cage and all, apd his Scream- 
ing hordes of screaming Id- 
diots swept the world. When 
they were finished sweeping 
they had a huge pile of dirt 
and no place to put it. It was 
a dirty joke on the April fool. 

The lost kingdom of Iddia. 
cage and all, zemains buried 
un<jler a hu|^ pile of dirt just 
nortih of Iifdia, but the joke 
on the April fool still lives on. 
If you are the butt of a dirty 
trick on April first you can 
blame it on the IddiOts, who 
started th<i Whole thing to be* 
gin Hdth. , 

'The Plaq's the Thing...' 

College Players has inrodue- 
ed another play — a comedy 
called You Can't Take It With 

Yoo. This play is a riproaring, 
roll-in-the-aisle type of play. 
(My roomie tried to roll be- 
tween the, seats and got his 
nose caught in the hinge of 
one.) However, the public does 
not see the best part of a play: 
the rehearsal. I will try to 
take you to one (rf them oc* 
curing about two weeks before 
the play. 

As I enter Straughn — on 
time for once — . the cast is 
setting the stage. This con- 
sists ol moving chairs, horns, 
and drums out of the way. (We 
lost Billy Bucholtz in a valve- 
bass and had to send in a search 
party.) After the junk is 
moved, rehearsal starts. Every 
one knows a few of his lines. 
After all, we have practiced for 
three weeks, and are now work- 
ing on interpretation. Miss^ 
Drum is excellent at this, and 
dances across the stage, tearing 
her hair and screaming at the 
top of her voice to show how 
the part should be done. She 
hopes some of it will mb off 
on us.

but , we must remember that

As the play starts, we find 
part of the cast isn't here yet. 
and again Miss Drum fills in. 
She is the Negro mai^* tiie 
heroine and the Russian danc- 
ing instructor all at the same 
time, complete With voice 
changes and actions. Of course 
the heroine may say^ *'Ah love 
yo*, dsrlting*.'' but no one 

Meanwhile, all members of 
the cast arrive, and we are 
ready to go. Things go along 
fine for a while until Tony 
Chiarilli lets out a snort. He 
just got the meaning of a line 
that he has heard at lesfst 
twent}^ times. Mel WooHard 
and Carolyn Downer are argu- 
ing about the love scenes. Car- 
olyn doesn't want to do them 
and Mel does. Miss Drum 
agrees \irith Mel but no decis- 
ion is reached. At this point 
i Richard DeGeus throws me to 
the floor in the wrestling Mwne 
but, due to a slight error, my 
head hits a chair. I don't re- 
member those lines in the play

Sets Replaced By Stands 

This sort of thing produces, 
believe it or not, the play that 
you see on the stage. It is lots 
of fun and we are all insured 
anyway. Dress reh6ilh»I is 
really a ball. We can't leave 
the sets up — Music Depart- 
ment won't allow it-—80 we set 
up, practice, and tear down in 
one night. It was three days be- 
fore we found Mike Fleming. 
He was under the sets — ^lost all 
his cuts, too. The next day we 
went back to see a jingle vio- 
lin player on the stage where 
our set could have been (he 
was only five feet tall, too). 
"It's a crazy world. Grandpa". 

Opening night (we^alao dose 
the same night) and sll is for- 
gotten dines that' is). We go 
through the performance and 
begin to believe it was aU 
worth it after aU. (I hope #e

one's religion at this time. 
There are a lew whose faith is 
based on false principles but 
the majority's faith is genuine 
and sincere. New clothes and 
hats for Easter season midw' 
very little difference to the«t 
and they attend church with 
the same feeling and interest 
as they have donar the rest of 
the year. 

It is remarkable to observe 
the faith a child has. Their 
is one of simple love and un--

need of explanations and rea-

The final eager of the 1957- 
58 school year to receive the 
Athlete of the Month award is 
Jon Peterson, the fair-haired 
lad from Bradford, Penna. This 
year Jon led the Mounts to the 
first winning seaso'n that they 
have enjoyed in twelve years. 

Jon began playing basket- 
ball at his hometown in Brad- 
ford when he was a member of 
the varsity squad at Bradford 
high in 1953 and 1954. Then 
in the fall of '54 Jon enrolled 
at Mansfield. Haying J. V. ball 
his first year he moved up to 
the varsity as a sophomore. He 
was used sparingly during this 
year but when he did get into 
the lineup he proved his worth. 
He was for froin being the top 
scor^ on the squad but he 
was a play maker, something 
Mansfield knew very little 
tbout in tliose days. He i)lay«d 
a goodi^.awr«g» game alirays 
feeding off' to Xig Williams or 
Joe Linkowski and always 
grabbing his share of the re- 

Last year Jon earned a po- 
«onttailMd his pl^ymaking ex- 


hibitions, was a lop rebounder, 
sition on the starting five. J^je 
and a tierrific shot wheii' he 
aimed his sight at the hoop. 
The only catch was that Petey 
would rather pass off to a 
teammate than to take a chance 
at missing tiie buidcet So Jon 
spent the 'Se-W season just 
grabbing rebounds, feeding his 
teammates, and bottling up 
the defense. 

This year Jon wa» eteeted to 
.captain the Mounts on the 

Coal Crackers 37, Supt».34 

Froflktoin, with 10 points, 
led the Coal Crackers, in a very 
close contest, for a three point 
victory. The game was close 
from beginning to end. The 
Coal Crackers led by a single 
point at halftime. 

Half time Coal Crackers 17,

The Dogs, in their drive for 
first place, whipped tbe Day 

hardwood, and not too much 
[^an be said for the job that 
he turned in. He kept the boya 
alive when they were behind? 
and he kept them working 
when they were ahead. His ag- 
gressiveness and intelligence 
were the sparkplugs of this 
year's team. 

Although* he was the . third 
top rebounder on the squad 
and ^he second in total assists, 
the statistics do not tell the 
whole story about Jon. If ag- 
gressiveness, leaddrsh^ timing, 
and defensive measures could 
be measured Petey would de-. 
finitely be at the top of the 
list. He definitely wi^ be mia- 
sed when the 1958^ cage sea- 
son rolls around. 

Besides his. intierests in bes*^ 
kietjfc^V «^PA slap finds time toi 
act as the president of the 
M-CLub and vice president of 
the Senior class. He is also ac- 
tive in intra'-mural refereeing.- 

In thft last issue of the Flaali> 
light this comment was made^ 
"If Jon has anything to say 
about it the Mountaineers will 
finish on th^ winning side of 
the ledgar" and Jon <^tainl3r 
did his riiaoe in accomplishing 
just this.

victories were especially not- 
able, for opponents such as 
Shippensburg, Brockport, and 
Courtland are noboc^'s xptuAi- 
overs. ' 

After experimenting Wllh var- 
ious combinations through most 
of the season, Coach Bill Gib- 
son finally got one to work. 
And this coo^ffclMi 0f 
Al Zyga, and Ron Firestone 
was the outfit which ground 
out the victories Ifke a w^ll- 
oiied machine. And- it is this 
outHt, with the addition -of Mike 
Gamble, Hal Hanson, and Gib 
Moore that looks like it may 
become Ma iM i flilfl ^s Iftrst "teimi 
i>f destiny. 

The ]V^ounts began the sea- 
son Tather slowly, picking up 
a pair of wins from their Lock 
Haven "cousins" while dropping 
a couple to a mediocre Lycom- 
ing team and a so-so Ithaca 
five. .Red Firestone was instru- 
mental in bo^h Lock Haven 
victories; Paul HvndiielE tedfiiob 
Felt also did outstanding jobs 
in these early victories. 

The disasterovs toad to-ip 
which followied almost rdined 
aay chance of a victorious see- 
son. Dismal defeats to Blooms- 
hurg STC, Ithaca College, Kings 
^mtitse, and Qarion STC 
'brought home a downcast group 
of wuTiers. Experiment alter

Joe Martun Leads 
Mounis to Victon) 

JOSEPH K. JMARTINI, or rather 
"Joe", as most of his fans call 
him, is quite the guy. As a 

matter of fact be is quite a 
basicetball player too. Here is 
a fellow who hails from the 
potato chip capital of Pennsyl- 
vania: Berwick. He came to 
iiansfteld right from high 
school and in his first season 
«n the baskefbldl squad, he 
was a star. As a matter of fact 
he was just about the most 
outstanding player en the team. 
This season, as a fresJu^an he 

_ ation seeing most of the action, 
«ix victories^ were recOTded 
^ttst iti^%0o diO^ i^ ihe ^ 


His astontshing finish wa^ 
even more amazing when the 
calibre of the opposition is con- 
sidered. Courtland' State Teach- 
ers seldom, if ever, lost a game 
to Mansfield, yet the revittfHsed 
Mounts defeated them as read- 
ily as any other team that they 
had faceti. Brocleport came to 
Mansfield vk^th one of the best 
aggregations they've had Jn 
years, lout they too, fell bpfore 
the "new" Mount cagers. In 
the greatest come-from-behind 
game oi the season, Mansfield 
showed real class and glamour 
in the story book Shfppenshurg 
game. Down by 17 points at 
one time, Mansfield's Zyg^'iaid 
Firestone, again helped by Mar- 
tini, Peterson and Felt, l^r^ht 
the tocals to even terms and 
then to the victory. ^ 

All of this ftte season ex- 
"citement ewn m«an only one 
thing—thirt Mansfield may at 
last have the '^team of destiny" 
which has been so hopefuUy 
watched for during the past 
few decades. In Ron Firestone, 
Coach Gibson has one of the 
finest small college playmakers 
in the state. Joe Martini has all 
the qualifications of an excef^ 
tional pivot man — his evcellent 
touch ahd ball control would 
make Joe Mansfield's all-time 
scoring ehampion. Thert- is 
probably not a better shot in 
the Teacbecs College Ceitf er- 
ence than Bob Felt— ^he' can 
Score freely and frequently and 
has come a long way in all 
around play. Al Zyga is hy far 
the most imivoved friayer on 
the s(|uad and was definitely 
the difference in several Mount 
victories. Al has learned tb 
drive and shoot with consider- 
able more accuracy thm ^fel-^^0fe^ 
ftrist games five seaaoh. 

Next year's fifth man will 
probably be either Mike Gam- 
hie or Gib Moore. W^e, of*.

(Coatlaaed from p«se 7) 

Three MSTC students recent- 
ly attended a conference on 
college social activities at Cal- 
ifornia State Teachers College 
ih southwestern Pennsylvania. 

Those who attended were: 
Robert Keenan, Kimlym Wil- 
son, and Malazina Snyder. Col- 
lege president. Dr. Lewis W. 
Rathgeber accompanied these 

Seven of |*epnsylvania's State 
Teachers Colleges kid dele- 
gates present. Conference ac- 
tivities included discussions of 
topics pertineiit to college so- 
eial activities. 

Guest speakers Included the 
President, Dean ofWomeii, and 
the Dean of Men of CSTC. 

be under the basket for any 
rebounds and on the offensive 
the rest of the team could fce< 
into the pivot to him. When a 
shot was thrown up from the 
outside, Joe would be in po- 
sition either to tap it in, grab 
it and shoot it back up or throw 
it back out to olie of • hl« team 

Despite his very impressive 
recoi-d, there were two other 
things Joe also excelled in: ba< 
passes and fumbles, of which 
he had 18 and 16 respectively 
for the season. This may look 
bad on Joe's part but you'll 
have to tike into conrideration 
that Joe, pesitton that 

he played handled the ball just 
as much if not more than the 
playmakers and ball Rahdlers 
on the team, justifying his bad 
passes and fumbles. 

Many of the students asflc 
Joe how he can see the bas- 
ket past his "big nose". Joe 
usually smiles and goes on 
his way but the records show 
that Joe saw the basket pret^ 
well. As a matter of fact, well 
enough, as 1 have said before, 
to be high in total pointage 
for the season and second in 
average points per game. Mans- 
field as we all know had a 
winning season this year with 
a 9-8 record, the ftsst in ten 
years. You might say that they 
obtained a winning season just 
by a no|e. Martini's nose? Who 


start such unfortunates up in 
farming, or business, again. 

This victim was so deeply 
ihctv^ftd by the help rendered 
and immediate offers of com- 
ing assistance, that he was 
novdd to address the assemo- 
led neighbors something like 

"My friends and neighbors, 
_ thank you. Some day I hope 
all your houses wilt take fire 
and that I can have a chance 
to do for you, too!"

Son - had been in the army 
for several months, when he 
wrote home to his mother. 
Said he: 

"Dear Mom: I like the army 
ife pretty goodr-and about the 
only thing that's different that 
I miiTd the most is the pot — I 
miss the pot under my bed." 

In her reply his good old 
mother wrote: 

"I'm so glad everything is 
working out so nice for you 
in the army— even about the 
pot — you knovi; you always mis- 
sed it when you was at home, 
remember?" " ' 

It Made Linle DifFerenfee 

In the horse-and-buggy era 
a young farmer drove leisurely 
along the road to town. Seeing 
a young woman on foot, bound 
in the same"" direction, he call- 
ed to her: _ 

Are you going to town, 

yes," was the answer. 
••Well, come on get^ on the 
buggy then, and ride along," 
he urged. 

For a spell the conversation 
lagged, imrwi««r da by asT-

"Say; where do you-Uve.** 
"Ei, righ! down the road," 
was her reply. 

••Wtfll, now, do you know, I 
don't believe I ever seen yon 
before," said the young man. 

All the while he kept giving 
her the usual appraisal ac- 
corded attractive girls. Con- 
cluding she was worth his 
while, he worked up courage 
to remark: 

"Say, you look like a right 
nice girl to me; do you think

Pennsylvania, which is the

"This is something newj- its 
success will depend upon 
everyone.^ These are the words 
spoken Theodore Newton, 
Student JRecreation Committee 
member, ' concerning the suc- 
eess of the newly formed com- 

Mr. Newton said, "We will 
start immediately. At first we 
will be small and have only a 
few activities. Everything will 
depend largely on the equip- 
ment and facilities that we~can 
get our hands on. At the pres- 
ent, the school doesn't even 
have an athletic field, and that 
will be a hindrance." 

The Student Council set up

it will have to be apiHTOved l^

Mr. Newton gave the purpos- 
es of the organization in the- 
foUowing «$a^teitt^iit: 'The pro- 
gram is designed' to giye the 
men and women students a 
little bit of al> different kinds 
of sports and social events." 

When asked if the program 
would succeed Mr. Newton re- 
plied, "Ves, it will succeed be- 
cause we have two good com'- 
mittee chairmen: Mrs. Lutes 
and Coath Stelmack. Also, I'm 
sure the students will co-oper- 
ate whole heartedly.'' Mr. New-

Is EzperieiiGe The Best Teacher? 

Eveoi:hing for everybody — ^that was the theory 
jOn which the present education system in the United 
iStates was primarily designed. BasieaHy, this con- 
^ciusion followed from the major premise that "all 
.m«».iw^'«w«ted Rathei; that applying that 

premise to economic principles as Karl Marx did, 
tJohn D€¥jpy and his disciples related it to educatio«. 

A 8cbo6l system was founded on the theory that 
everyone was entitled to an equal opportunity for 
ittstruction a»d advancement. This revolutionary ed- 
ucation aywtem was geared to accompli^sh two main 
goals: (1) the education of the masses, and (2) the 
advancement of each individual according to his 
ability and interests. These goals— although ideal — 
ei^ntiially wwiw int© conflict with each other because

child, and by not stimulating advanced intellectual 
achievement of such a student, we are jeopardizing 
not only the potential attainment of that individual, 

Yes, we must pause to evaluate our school sys-' 
tern today L Preparing high school students for citi- 
iBenship, teaching them to adapt more conveniently 
to their enyironment— these were the innovations of 
^ewejtism ,^t tended to reduce learning from the 
technlcalt^ands atmeturali to^i tlMt^^ractibcal and func- 
tional type of learning that is stressed today. We do 
not want less of this type of training; rather, we 
want more of the fundamental, factual coAirses. 

Not only do we.want more of the classical train- 
ing; we need more of it, ^On th feather hand, we can- 
not dismiss the vocational^lmd extracurricular as- 
.f^ts of education. As essential components' of our 
way of living, they must remain an integral part of 
our school sj'Btem; however, they must assume, a 
supplementary role, not. a domination role. Xliua, 
iriieiit0F^«i^>liiaite''WlU be placed on the basic princ- 
iples of sub}e(M; |n»tter courses. ^ ^ 

We, as members of ai atote teachers college, will 

be decidedly affected by this revolution in education, 
which — brought to the surface as a result of Sputnik 
■ — is underway at the present time. Already, teachers 
colleges hav#^ been Gliallei^ddr criticieed, and con- 
demned. The focal point of these attacks on teach- 
ers colleges is the predominance of "method over 
subject matter." 

The following quote is an example of the com- 
ments made in the recent Gallup Poll regarding the 
opinions Of high school principals on 'the^-above is- 
sue;^ "The teacher? colleges are the poorest we^ 
Jiave. They take poor students down to the 50 per- 
eentile. It's really sad^ sad, sad-^the blind. lAading 
the blind.** ^ 

In an editorial in Life and Time, the following 
statement was made : "Most of our state teachers col- 
leges aKo vild r be - al^oUahed as such and converted 
into liberal arts coHeges^ with subordinate education 
dej^ptmsfnls." ^ . 

Are we, as future teachers, willing to defend 
the existing standards of teachers colleges? Are 
we ready to. denounce th« inessentials? Are we pre- 
pared to advocate the . bMMftts and remedy the 
tf»tflts? Have students in teachers c<illeges spent too 
much time learning teaching methods instead of 
'learning the subject they are going to teach? Has 
method become a goal in i^g^^l' l^mmrM 
fimilar questions, are yours to determine. Is «Kperi-

Goncerowng the l«t4er written 
by a "North Hall Resident" 
which Appeared in the March 

I am sipending , only ata^ut 
Mteen miny tes in the composi- 
tion of this letter which is 
really more tinil than I can af 
ford to waste. But I do fed 
that she deserves a reply; mix-; 
ed-up people usually jneed help. 

I could employ all sorts of 
deprecatory adjectives in my 
endeavor to describe the views 
of Miss vNosth H»U; however, 
I think one will be sufftcient 
and considerably more kind: 
immature. Her opinions on 
school spirit, and late basket- 
ball permis^pilia s^^ra well- 
founded, but tlflen she des- 
cends \o stupidity in her re- 
quest for dismissal of classes 
for afternoon ballgames. The, 
callowness of this individual! 
is reflected in the very question 

Perhfps I am mistaken, but 
I WAS under Uie impmsston that 
extra-curricular activities meant 
those .outsid* of studies, not 
instead of studies. I don't know 
about Little Miss Muffet whO) 

classes interfere witb her so- 
cial life, but I f^ei that there 
are some people here who came 
for an education and want to 
^ their money's worth. 

And while we're on the sub- 
ject of money, NHH laments 
herself as having been "un- 
fortunate enough to have class- 
es at 4 p.m.," "cou^'t see the 
game," and yet "had to pay 
the • Activities Fee." I wonder 

\ ^ fKig fnfmit>iig foirtn lni Qf tg«tf<^«l 

the assemblies and Artist Ser- 
ies Programs for which she al- 
so paid her Activities Fee? Or 
did she have night elaiaea <iK>8e 


In further consideration of 
this person, I am curious as 
to whether"»he "4P«id",l|er Ac- 
tivities Fee at all, or di4 per- 
haps "Daddy" pay it for her? 
If so, , I can understand her 
warped wist of value — com- 
paciaon ot HhB 'permanence of 
learning with-^the epliemera- 
lity of a basketball game. Does 
she realize how hard "Daddy" 
worked-for that money, or is 
she just plain ungrateful? 

My fiflMh nHiHitos «*• 119 so, 
in conclusion, I- would recom- 
mend te Miss North Hall the 
2dl«wiftg: Mere classes-— if any- 
ooe needs to lei^n, you do, 
honey! the courage of your 
convictions-^sign your ' letter 
if yau don't fear censure; and, 
more of that "beauty sleep" 
you mention— if your physi^ 
appeersBce 1$ as shabby as ytfnr 
mental, you need it! ! ^ 


In reply to a letter from a 
"Residmt of North Hall" say- 
ing the cheerleaders ^ould foe 
as pefq^y. as the band, the squad 
would like to point out that 
while a trumpeter doesn't need 
anyone to help him blow his 
horn, the cheerleaders can do 
little without the support ofi 
the student body. 

Every year the freshmen 
comment on the lack of what 
they feel is pep in the type of. 
cheers used. It must be reai- 
4iaed that this is college and 
the eheers are different ipotn 
those of your high school oayi; 
,the girls preparing to be tfeacn- 
ers should have a certain dig- 
nity not found in high school 
cheerleaders. Also, aur aim is 
primarily to rw>t the team on: 
we do not cheer to- our—do an 
opposing team's eh««rlew|er8. 

Itte aim stems back to need 
of Mipport. Referring again to 
the letter, the particular group 
that did. all the chsering this 
year was, oddly eneugh. com- 
posed mostly of upperclassmen. 
Every other year we had to de- 
4W|Ki en 'llie 'IniAmen lor aap-

Within a feW'K**eks another academic year will 
draw to a close, graduation gowns will be donned, 
speeches made, platforms mounted, and "sheep-

Hoyle except for one minor detail— tiie ^iiaines on

All of the diplomas will bear a single name, but 
only a majority will bear it deservingly. In place of

will be fewer, perhaps more, but always a little,

Mansfield^ who lack commojn sense. Tll^]^ don't seem

Laxity on the part of the lai^t^ lifi^b 4n inasy

improper administration of tests, but also in fail-

malpractices. Again, these violatorr airife only a few,

can be shortened considerably. The "Student-Faculty 
Council on cheating is taking action at present, and 
will soon make their report. Will their colleagues, 
the remaining m^mbm . of the" students and. faculty, 
back them? Let's hope so.

bs^' th^ adBthi&tration and 
' th* librarian. . .Ultf itfgwjcy Of 
the need for a library cailUot 
be overemphaaiMd." 

Theve wopcte' are from the 
reponif th« ' evaUiatioa of 
MansfieM State Teachers Coh 
lege by the Middle States As- 
sociation of Colleges and Se- 
eondai^ Schools, made in 1955. 

They indicate the basic prob- 
lem that has f a^ the College 
library for a good many years 
-:-the lack of physical facili- 
ties thitt are adequate for a 
Mbranr in an^ institution of 
WAmM^i size.' 

/r«V» pbrary Building 

Tb^ pi£sent lack of facili- 
ties /was uppermost tn thie 
minds of those who planned the 
College's conaing expansion. 
The resttlt is that a modern Li- 
brary - Adminifltration Btrild" 
tng is \o be erected as one of 
the two initial units of the 
scheduled construction pro* 

The> architect of this build- 
falgf .which will' also houae the 
Pl^Pfge's administrative offices, 
belfeves that it should be ready 
for use by September, 1959. 
H ew o v e g |> dekiya are common 
iwilliHewartnicUeff' projects of 
Ibia 'type, and do.ubU hav^ 
» been Expressed as to whether 
the move into the building can 

be idalle untU at least 1960. 

The library bas occupied 
temporary quarters on the 
first floor of North Hall since 
1950. That these quarters are 
far from ideal should be quita 
apparent. Because the new 
builtfH^ ^ ^peobably^ n«t U 
ready for some time, floWeveiN 
attention has now focused on 

the service that the library 
can ■ pr o vi de in -its --present' ie- 

Conger Hovrat 

Manir atudeote have oome to 
feel, that the College Library 
•hould increase its hours of 
bperit*Miv parttculafty- in tho 
eveningi^^ (Sae-itiw e<lilarial and 
UtUt^M Jht editor in tbo 
Flashl^, Mazsb. 18B8.) tteee 

reasons why longer hours are 
de$irei) b9v<e b(^ given to the 
fiHik'afy C^tnmlttee; whose 
membership consists partly of 
students. The reasons are (1) 
the need to work on term pa- 
pers, (2) the need to study for 
'final^teitt;^ afid^^) thf iiNI thitr 
some students would like to 
spend two or three hours at one 
time in the library. 

In respoase^ to this demand^ 
the Library Committae is now 
working on plans fQr lengthen- 
ing the hours by this fall. 
Larger StaifFCV 

Miss Steele, Gdt^ li- 
brftrianK ha* pointed 0«* 'ttit it 
would be extremely difficult for 
the library to remain open 
longer with only its present 
staff <three fuH^thne Ubrartana 
and -one part-time libcrian). 
She has explained that many 
duties are involved in order to 
keep:a Ufcrary in^i^mtion and 
that longer hours would greats 
ly add to these duties. 

Recognizing this, the College 
intends to add a full-time pro- 
fessional librarian and a typist 
to the staff this summer. M 
case a fuU-time librarian is not 
available, however, a part-time 
librarian will be hired to work 
during the evening. This will 
bring the library staff .cloaef 
to the minimum recoMmended 
by the American Library As- 
sociation for a college of Mane* 
field's size, which is five librar* 
ians pltn. Tlerieal help. (The 
number of houra is ahready 
somewKat oyer the minimum.) 
More Spacet' 

Because «t thd^-liMdequacy of 
the library's present space; 
longer hours and a larger ^itaff 
will still leave serious prob^ 
lems unsolv^ ' 

With room for only about M 
bbairs, the library' cannot* pr* 
v^dO'^foP' -anything appsoaching 
25 per cent of the student hotly 
at one time, whieh is often con- 
sidered 1b mlnlmtim. The pres- 
ent combined office and worl» 
room is too small for the staff. 
Perhaps most 'serious of ally 
limitatioiMk^f shelf space pre^

(Room, for the 800 to 900 nevt 
books audded each year can he.

Fortunately, plans are now 
being worked out for inerea»- 
ing ^is apace. The porch in 
front of the JibMiy .any be'en**^ 
flosed to give more seating 
^nemiv Aii>tlMr' oflte^ 'for the

The Strong Pointa 

In di^ussing the service 
which the- College- liteary ean 
pnovide, it is weU not- to lose 
sight of the present strong 
points. The number of books, 
although not increasing r^id- 
ly, was 35,901 last year whioh 
still compares well with cor- 
responding figures |or other 
Pennsylvania ^te' teachers col- 
leges. The library subscribes to 
nearly 250 periodicals and 
about 25 newspapers, the t|UAi- 
Itf of winch WM termed "ex-

uation report of the Middlo 
Statea Assoeiation. Newly pab^ 
lished encyclopedias are fre- 
quently added to the up^o-date

The lilMrary circulated 87^937 
books and ot-her materiaks to 
students last year, contrasted

—Dale Stewart 
One of the most popular at- 
tractions in oar state was form- 
erly known to local people as 
• *^?l«vorite picnic spot": The 
Crifttor's Masterpiece, Penn- 
sylvania's Grnid Canyon, which 
U located about two miles out 
of Wellsboro on Route 660. 

There is a long history be- 
hind the development of this 
tourists' mecca. The canyon, 
now nearly fifty miles long and 
one thousand feet in depth, 
WDi fcMrmed, so we are told, 
after the glacial age when the 
Tioga River which drained the 
area was cut off by a mass of 
sediment from the melting ice. 
Thus resulted what is kiiown 
today as Pine Gre^ Which 
drains the area jr^et tfMiajr. 
Advent #r WhHo ^IMm 

As the centuries passed, the 
creek cut its way deeper and 
deeper into the terrain until 
1786 when tK€_ first White men 
came into the section. These 
men were lumbermen and were 
therefore interested in the 
large expanse of timber whi6h 
tl»y found at their disposal 
here in the peaceful valley. Ag 
rieulture-minded men soon be 
ghn to realize the advantages 
for fanning that the land on 
the eastern -side of the oanyon 
offered,' so they bought up the 
remaining lands afid began to 
till the rich soil. . 

In later years, Leonard Har- 
rison, a farmer in the canyon 
-iCMihtry, MflUaed the beauty of 
the viefw that -had for many 
years so richly inspired him. 
So impressed was he that he 
opened his land to the puMie 
and, at his own expense, built 
an approach, several pavilions, 
and some lookout poihts. 
MMto lnf« Stat* Park 

Later he doaated the tract 
of land to l%e Gommoiiw^th, 
and in his honor it mu -Qamed 
"Leonard Harrison State Park." 
This, of course, is^but one of 
several piaMic parK^ that are 
included ih the Grand Canyon, 
^mong the othen. are Colton 
-State Park, Cookdjtt- Point and 
Bradley Wales Park. 

The canyon was crossed at 
many points by Indian txails, 
which have in recent years 
been maintained fbr public use. 
One can, by taking any one of 
them travel to the bottom of 
the canyon where he can see 
the calm F'ine Creek as it flows 
on its way to the Susquehanna 
River, steadily wearing its way 
deeper,- ever deeper into the 

PrM Guidod Tours Olfarad' 

If you are just out for a Sun- 
day drive, the canyon country 
offers red, yellow, and white 
vrow^tours that can be talien 
_ free ol charge. These tours are 
"carefnlly marked out by ar- 
rows of specific colors that are 
placed at intervals along the 
highway. By following them, 
you will find tjiat you can drive 
around the canyon and view 
its many wonders. The length 
of these tours varies from forty 
to seventy - five miles. 

The Grand Canyon has much 
to offer other tJian h^r scenic 
qualities. Eadi year, the 'Penn- 
sylvania State Laurel Fe^ival 
is held there and with it comes 
^he most attractive high school 
girls from all o\f r the State to 
vie for the Laurel Queen hon- 

Wellsboro plays host to thes^ 
contestants, but much of the 
pomp and ceremony takes 
place as the queens and their 
escorts tAttt the caajy^ 
try for an afternoon fun 
anil relaxation. 

Fish and Gam* Abound - 

Besides all of this, the Can- 
yon Country is^ tritly a sports- 
man's paradise. In the forests, 
deer, bear, and snuill game are 
to be found in cbundaniee. In ad- 
dition, Pine Creek and her 
many sparkling tributaries are 
stocked with fish from the 
State and Federal Fish Hatch- 
eries making the Canyon a 
fisherman's paradise. 

More and inore travelmind- 
ed^ |ouriita:4»e taking heed to 
the slogan: "This Year See 
Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon," 
for it is rapidly becoming one 
of the most prominent tourist 
meecas in the eastern Unitdd 
States. It is yours to enjoy, so 
why don't you visit the Grand 
Canyon, too? 

-~Ra]ph Verraftro 

The word '"recession", in an 
economic sense, means a gener- 
al doiNUpn of business, or, 
"leai nimy going over the 
counter." There are two schools 
of thought on how this situa 
tion can be corrected. -One 
dalls for government interven 
tion in various areas and would 
demand ' spending of public 
money; the other maintains 
that the business world should 
be allowed to handle thii^ in 
its own w|^y^^^I 

Those MIh|BP ^0 

tend the i|H^l|nethod are 
usually dir^P^lBnoectad . cor 
well indoctrinated in dlo' iniys 
of U.S. business. They are also 
in total support of Representa- 
tive Mills of Arkansas who is 
heading a movement to rimove 
our graduated income tax in 
favor of a flat 10 per cent levy 
on every income. Mills, inci- 
dently, is the chairman of the 
tax-writing House . Ways'^ aiid 
Means Committee. 

Those individuals who con- 
tend the latter solution were 
also greatly alarmed by the re- 
cent Treasury Department no- 
tice that allows teachers to 
deduct money spent on further 
education from their taxable 
incomes. They also disapproved 
the new regulations governing 
G. L home loans. This move has 
already begun to spur both 
hbme building and buying. Ac- 
curate figures are not yet avail- 
able, but it is believed that the 
money flow in this activity has 
increased some ., 20 percent 
over pMfiausly* averaged peri- 

I feel that lib one wants as 
much governmenH; intervention 
as was experienced in the de- 
pression and post depression 
period, hut, I cannot help feel 
that legislation that puts no 
direct financial burden on, any- 
one and unites business, gov- 
ernm^t and people in a com- 
mon^ cause is a good thing. 
Both the new teacher income 
tax table and the lower inter- 
est rate on G. I. loans fall into 
this category.

The Low Down on Hi-Fi 

. —Floyd Lbunsbury 
In keeping with 'the current 
interest tibroughout the coun 
try, students at Mansfield have 
bee<Hne h^b*fididity conscious. 
It is almost iihpossible to walk 
through the boys' dorm without 
hearing a blast of sound from 
orfe iMT m6f« hMI ieU. 

However, hi-fi is not merely 
volume as many people seem 
to think it is. A tme high-fidel- 
ity outfit shbuld reproduce 
sounds exactly ms fheif- were or- 
iginally recorded. Tp do this 
the record player must be cap- 
able of reproducing sounds 
throughout "the human hearing 
ranger-4M to 2<M)00 cycles per 
second — with a very slight 
amount of distortion. This dis- 
tortion can be caused by many 
factdirs: improper recording, 
worn parts on a reccurd player, 
a worn needle or a slayer that 
is not a true high-fidelity ma- 

CautMn Is Advftiitf 

.The trend that is being fol- 
loinMi by the manufacturers of 
rectHTd players at the present^ 
tipie is to stick another speaR^ 
tr oH a player and print the 
words "hi-fi*' on the front. In 
their opinions this makes the 
set worth from $20 to $50 

Back the Sack 

—Bob Rupar 

In late 1957, the Chemise- 
sapk-bag dress was launched, 
and in 1058, we have olj^ved 
some otherm^ beautiful 
"Dolls** wearing the "Sack- 

l«et's examine Webster's def- 
" inliion of a Bag: (1) a container 
with an opening at the top; (2) 
a container for game (!!!); (3) 
an unattractive woman. 
~<;oncernijig the first defini- 
tion, the chemise does have an 
opening at the top, but fortun- 
ately for GAMologists (my pri- 
vate lingo for- experts in leg- 
study) it also has an opening at 
the bottom. • * 

The second definition applies 
too, because, while "Dolls" are 
"game", the chemise-sack-bag 
also brings out the animal in- 
fililfit el the clothes-conscious 

One'I^rbminent designer, Nor- 
man Norwell. has said that 
"Fabric . slithering over the 
body is far more sexy than a 
fiitted bodice. The chemise is 
to come a little below the 
knee:" However, don't get too 
excitedv-^ males; the dress does 

not crawl up When the lady 

is seated. 

Ah, my poor Mr. Webster! 
You'Uj have to add a new def- 
inition to the already lengthy 
list. Could it be something like 

BAG (also cheihise or sack) 
in female fashions; wearing ap- 
parel made of burlap cloth, ac- 
centing the negative, and re- 
sembling the type of container 
ift which feed for animals 

comes/' (Price range: $4.74 tn^ i^g every indicaUpn of continu 


more. However, you can do the 
same thing yourself for about 
$3.50 and get the results. 
There ^wOl te Uttle Improve- 
ment in sound bat you will 
have two speakers. 

niere are some commercial 
sets on the market that do pro- 
duce excellent sound, bvt a 
person tnust have some idea of 
high fidelity before he starts 
looking at them, to begin with, 
the record changer or turn- 
table must be able to handle 
33 1/3 rpm records, Very little 
is recorded on the old 78 rpm 
these days and the slower speed 
records seem to give better re- 
productidii of sound. The play- 
ing arm of the changer must 
have either a magnetic or cer- 
amic cartridge wl^ a ^Uanioiid 
needle. The changor sHioidd 
shut off after th^ last record 
is played, be mounted on 
springs, have a rubber turn- 
table mat aiui have a turntable 
that runs at a constant speed. 

RMluisitM Of Good Outfits 

Of course the changer is only 
a part of a high fidelity out- 
fit; an amplifier is also neces- 
sary. This should be capable of 
handling sounds from 20 to 
20,000 cps with very little dis- 
tortion. It should have separ- 
ate bass and treble controls 
and ^ould have a power out- 
put of at least 8 watU. (The 
most popular at present seems 
to be 20 wayto:) 

Finally we come to the speak- 
ers. The quantity of speakers 

does hot give a set its fidelity, 
but the quality of the speak- 
ers does. The speaker must be 
capable of handling the im- 
pulses sent oUt by the amplifier 
and not turn them into squawks 
and whistles. When several 
speakers are ul^d in m set, a 
device known as a crossover is 
employed. This channels the 
sounds over a set number of 
cycles per second into one 
speaker and the others Inito a 
lower speaker. The speakers- 
must be, of a type that will 
handle the type of sound that 
is sent to it. 

Expensive, But Worth It 

When you combine these 
qualities in a commerciar set, 
the pace is high but ^he re- 
sults are worth it. However 
many hi-fi fans construct their 
own sets from changers, ampli- 
fiers and speakers purchased 
separately. This often results 
in a better set iat a reasonable 

Most people (at least in 
Mansfield) seem to use their 
high fidelity sets for playing 

classical music, show tunes and 
jazz. These types of music are 
recorded so tthat the best of 
your equipment is shown as 
well as the best of the orches- 
tra or the singer. All in all, hi- 
fi is a thing that few people 
would be without once they 
have experienced what it has 
to offer. It is one of the fastest 
growing interests in America 
at the present time and is $how- 

This 20th Century is a cen- 
tury of advancement in numer- 
ous fields of science and elec- 
tronics. ~ Indeed, new advances 
are presenting to us new hori- 
zons for research. For example 
in the theatrical field we are 
presented with new and unique 
entertainment ranging from 
Cinerama to the newest in mo- 
tion picture advancement, Pay- 
choama (see Life, March 31 

Out of ' the astronomical field 
are coming plans of space trav- 
el to sa^Sfy our curiosity of 
the unknown. Soon man wiN 
take his first step into space by 
landing on the moon. Incident- 
ally, did you realize that low 
forms of plant life might exist 
on the moon? Truly, a change 
of color has been noted in the 
modn's deepest drater, Newton 
crater. The preceding question 
accompanied by n-u m e r u s 
others has been puzzling our 
top astronomers and scientists. 
For hov long will these ques- 
tions press upon man? We can- 
not say, but one thing is (or 
certain. Man will not quit seek- 
ing the answers until he finds 
them, for it if the unknown that

They included: folk dances,

The 3,000 mile • in - diameter 
sphere rotates at a distanice of 
36 million miles from the sun. 
Sorry lovers, you couldn't walk

has no satellite. As far. 9& tem- 
perature goes it ranges from 
high above 212 (Tegrcea to .al-

Mansfield. Pennsylvania. MAY, 1958 



By Bob ffrnntn 

There's a eowl^dy on tele-, Mansfield, for ii|(it»Ek». il lias 
vision who opens his program [stirred many of our athietes to 

by saying, "I'm the first man 
13»ey look for and the last man 
they want to see!" This saying 
or slogan has no particuhn* apr 
plication here, llut,< since this i» 
to be the last Sportsoript by 
yours truly, there are those who 
will say, "He's the Ust man wt 

w^ted to s«e iit Mansfield #i «very aports writer that ever 

and the first person we'd like 

Well, I'm going— there will 
be no more Sportscripts writ- 
ten by Bob Keenan. Those 
vrtiich have been written are 
now part of the record; nothing 
ore can be done about them. 
Whether or not they were real- 
' Istie, eonscieiitk)U8 accounts is 
.a matter for the school histor 
. Hans to decide. Whether oj; not 
they accomplished any thing is 
equally debatable. 
One thii^g is certain, how- 
* .mttr. ;:Tli?8e aceott^ wer^ read 
"^" lii" wer^ disc#siBd. '^ore in- 
terest was created and people 
..Jooked a little more closely at 
* the athletic situation. Faculty, 
students, ; and athletes read the 
column and^ took a stand one 
, iWay or the other. 
- — But that is hov^ the press i^ 
supposed to operate. Public op- 
inion Uikes a great deal from 
newsimpers, and, however small 
it is, our own Flashlight is a 
major factor in „ molding stu 

dent opinion. The power of 
the press cannot be calculated. 
B^ause even if nobody agrees 
with what is wiitten, the very 

fact that everyone is against it, 
migllt^tae exactly the effect that 
'Qie autti0r desired. For, you 
4>ee, no 0roup of people^ pushes 
as hard as a, gi'oup which, is 
^gjoinst som^thj^g. 

Sports columns which criti- 
cize athletes, athletics, or atb- 
Jetic situations are very com- 
mon form of sports writing in 
American hewspapers- It re- 
mains a standard form^ of sports 
reporting because it is wbat 
' the sports public wants to read- 
:Bilt Ws t^ of writitag has its 
other ihirposes, too. Here at 

play harder, better, and strong- 
er, lust so they could make a 
liar out of^the loea^ sports writ- 
er. This is a common occur- 
rence- Other college papers 
have stimulated athletes to 
0reater heights just because 
iweae atliletes bated the guts 


The critical column is, of 
couKse, just one pkMe of sports 
reporting. When yours . trui^ 
took over the sy«rta joJb o#^4he 
RMhiight some three years 
afto,; thi» phiuse as wi^ aa many 
Others' were seriously lacking. 
The sports reporting waa^ 
as ' "the sports teams/- ~ Neither 
won too much recognition from 
Ihe student tiMidy. 

NSo, several ithin^ were in- 
augurated. Banner headlines 
flew where nary a one had 
flown before. Future games 
were highly pubUciced; past 
victories w«'e pli^ed up in 
bold type. Pictwes of athletes 
were too costly to_ publish be- 
fore, but we got money some- 
where and gave some of our 
plasters the recognition they 
desorved. '^Proudly We Cheer" 
appeared, featiures of outstand- 
ing players were written, and 
"Athlete of the Month " awards 
were given to .the very best 

]U[nriefitt Ld^ athlStSS. '- 

The sports page pats-on-the- 
back were far more mnmerous 
then the^ ldck«i»tiie pants. But 
both had ' ttieir piece hi our 
newspaper and both, I sincere- 
ly hope, will remain on these 

sports pages.' 

I leave this column and this 
HAgfi^xikoWf to. future liUnsfield 
stddentf. tlie Flashlight and 
everyMie eoBMcted with it 
have treated me well. I can 
honestly say that Fm proud to 
have worked with such fine and 
ambkti^s people. I have come 
to leve Mansfield very nuich. 
You cann^ love a tiling with* 
out wanting to figbt for it^ I 
have done n^y best.

•♦Caiiey" Cochran and his 
diamoiid cohorts expect the lo- 
cal baseball season to be just 
as successful or even more suc- 
cessful, than the football and 
basketball season. With a. fee 
a^eie)l8 , of veterans and some 
seaeoaed ,»nd energeUc fresh- 
men, there is a strong possibil- 
ity that just such a year may 
be in alore. 

The opening games at Bleems- 
burg showed just how much po- 
tential the Mounts have. With a 
few more hits* the Mansfield 
run total could have bee^ dou- 
bled or even tripled. The pitch- 
ing, which is of course a major 
factor ill the success of base- 
ball, was handled very well by 
Rich Warters, Bud Morse, and 
Hurst mttto. v~ 

When Cortland comes to 
Mansfield this Saturday for the 
local home opener, they will 
bring with them as good a team 
as the Mounts will play this sea- 
son. During the past seven 
years, the New Yorkers have 
won 11 of the 13 games played 
between the two teams. Coach 
Gibson is- aware of the tough 
pitching his team will be forced 

to face and has been working 
a new strategy to cope witti the 
situation. He hopes to have his 
front-Une pitchers rested 

eHUugir "t^ go again and may 
use all three if necessary. 

This year's squad is expected 
to be led by such veterans as 
Rich Warters, Hurst Mitten, 
Vince Siracuse, Dan Bills, and 
Mac Morse. Of the newcomers, 
Bud Morse looks very good and 
should, play .regularly. Other 
Creshoien who, Bii<ikt «ie ection 
include ' Zhiaiie ftummer, Jug 
McKecVer, PhiliDeWitt, and 
Henry Htlghes. ' 

The starting nine is not def- 
inite but as of press time it 
looks as thmigh the Mounts 
ttigkt Une tt|» tieh \Wartcir8 en 
the mound and Bud Morse^ Ed 
Babcock, or Joe Seancella be- 
hind the plate. At first. Tony 
Delia Sfilla seems to have won 
the starttatg assifttment. The 
jecond base slot could be filled 
capably by either- |>hil DeWitf 
or Jag McKoeyer; > P ei Wst t will 
probAbly get ikt nod. Al Zyga 
seems to be ceadng along at 
shortstop but Dtek Sunderlin i 
has shown good form in 
practice. Don fikfilweU and ' 
Hal Hansen are still play- 
ing cat and mouse at third base; 
both are capable with Don b^- 
ing the most likely to start. In 
the outfield, the left pasture 

STAN (left to right): John Mewc. Vlnce Sh-acuse and 

?«S?®riS2!^lLi,'^"^®^J°!-. i>«w^ Sliiwrell, Hurst Mitten, 
Tony DeUo Sella, and Al Zyfia. . 

beJoags to B«d Mocse wl^ 

he's not pitching. ^Otherwise it 
will probably be Ralph Carl's, 
one of the nonTptayiog infield- 
ers. Centerfield wiU be strong- 
est with Vince Siracuse ptatrol-' 
ling that garden. And right field 
will most likely be occupied by 
Dan Bills or Duane Plummer. 

This^^year ail the games, (ex- 
cept Cortland, away) are being 
pWed as doiiblobeadcrS' This 

will give the Mounts a .total of 
15 games, with 8 of. them beipg

The first two dPieetpg ol the | 
cuinnullee has led to a set of! 
regulations governing the use 
of tbo^ tennis court in fr^t of 
the "Hut". A list of tbese regul- 
ations appears below. 

Th« . purpose of -this coAamit-. 
tee is, to study recreational fa- 
cilities now existing at the col- 
lege, to determine what ist^* 
provements are needed, and to 
n[iake better use of -facilities' 
not used to any degree in the 
past. It iai tliro. ^hQ job of this 
committee to make proposals 
and suggestions for additional 
recreatioaal facilities, and to 
plan for these facilities. The 
comniiltee is restricted, to.-phy- 
sical recreation such as jnlU'a- 
mural q>ort8 within Mansfield 

itself. This does not include 
phy.sical education classes. A 
year-round recreation program 
has been mentioned by ,,the 
eonraijilee as well as ooQUdsra- 
tion Tof a recreatioirat equip- 
ment budget, and a cenlral 
place for the storage of athletic 

; Suggestions, from the gtu- 
dent bojdy .will , be welcomed by

"Adequate technique is a

not the end; it is only a means 

. ' to -the end, thai- end being mus-

Johft B/ Little, professor of

lege for eight years, was seat-

WHi4M Under Bach AufherHy 

Continuing his ideas about 
technical values, he reminisc- 

i ed: "When I was at Southern 
Methodist University, I stud- 
ied with the noted Bach au- 
thority, Paul Van Katwijck. At 
. ttiat time I was working on 
flie^ j^t^tic "Chroma^ -Pan- 
tasy and Fugue in G minor, of 
Bach. I thought I had really 
prepared it well; and I must 
confess that, while ''the 
thoughts of youth are long, Icpg 
thoughts," youth is also very 
conceited. But Mr. Van Katwi- 
Jdc jummed up my perform- 
ance with this^ statement: 
"Well, John, you*ve set the

A Heritage Must £n^ 

by George Beyer v 
When we look back over the past few yelrs at Mansfield 
State Teachers College, we cannot help but pause over the num- 
ber of improvements that haye been made. Time and again. 
wJ»an the need ier changes in one area or another have become 
Teoognized, changes have been put through. ^ ^ , . 

The opening of the Student Union and ita later enlargement, 
the renovation of the interior of Straughn Hall, the repainUng 
of the . Student Center, the coming of Cinemascope to the col- 
lege, the reorganization of student teaching — these are a few 
of the most n^worthy. 

The future holds promise of more to come. Ubf*^ h<M«^s 
are to be extended. The curriculum is to be revised. Most 
'imnortMil of aU, the college's long-range building program 
wiU soon begin with the sUrt of construction on a new 
-4ibiqffy Admiiiiatgatioa^ BidMia g. r a a 

AU these improvements are to be welcomed, inaeea 
>chaage» such as these are absolutely necessary if Mansfield 
State Teachers College is to remain a growmg and aynamic 
• instlliiitiniti At the same time, there is something else that 
should not be foi«otte«. 

The concern that we have felt for Mjansfields continued 
growth stems from an attachment that we have developed 
for this coUege. For no other college, in most cases, do we 
feel «M€l»-att5 attachment. As we have grown to know Mansfield 
wfe taw beowne awane of a certain esstatial someteing that sets 
this college apart from all others in our eyes. We nmst sure 
that, amid the present and future changes at Manafti^df this 
esKiiUal something is not lost. 

Wliftt is this quaHty? It ia a part of the atmosphere that sur- 
T<niBii» the e^leie* It stems |»rtly flrom certain ideals that have 
long motivated the instruction given here, partly from the con- 
tributions of earlier men and women that still have their in&Be&oe 
today, partly from that character ol thi laniieipe tt»t aUmps 
this institution as Mansfield. 

Tills quality is one that gives those who have been associated 
with Mansfield a feeling of identity with the college — of 
belonging to one community whose heritage extends hack more 
than a hundred years. As Mansfield continues to mov^ *®r*"j5 
in response to the changing demands of a new age, we should 
emnhasize that heritage. 

We should- become better aware of the background of 
Mansfield's history. We should know more than we do about the 
many men and women who have given so much to this insti- 
tution over the years. We should understand better the tre- 
mendous odds that faced ^e Mansfield Classical Seminary m 
those first yea^s and the patience aqd- perseverance without 
which there would surely be no college here today. We should 
acquaint ourselves with the changes undergone by 4his insti- 
tution which was first a seminary, was then for sixty-four years 
a normal school, and finally became a state teachers college. 

We should ask ourselves M*at it is that has caused so many 
people to work so hard these hundred years for the advance- 
ment of Mansfield. If we do so, we will probably agree that 
these words spoken by Simon B., Elliott in 1890 to describe the 
early figures n| the school ivfrtcuet also -eC nmiy who foftow- 

**It was their desire that the darfc places be lighted for the 
good of those to come after them, by. the lamps of intelligence, 
and thought, and culture — They had confidence that if men 
could but have the opportunity to see, that the highest achieve- 
ments would be attained. Without vanity or pride they were 
yet qbnfldent; but they wanted light." 

Through this institution's history, there have developed 

' traditions, each forming a link with the past. These should be 
preserved and cultivated. The story of the stone bench, given 
to the Normal School by the Delphic Fraternity, should be better 
known to us. So should that of the boulder which commemorates 
Mansfield soldiers who fought and died in World War I AU 
of us should realize that Straughn Hall was nawjedfpr^Jjjj 
William R. Straughn. who headed thisjjglgg^tii the backf 
any other man. We shouljj^oriday diaiiem and dances, the 
ground! of s^cft,^Alumni Day and Conitneheement 
weUdSWfH'of these traditions, in its way, symbolizedTthe college. 

<-Cyer the years, however, one thing has become recognized 
as the symbol of the college. -This is Uie tower clock of Alumni 

Since' the year of the building's completion, in 1886, the 

Srespnt bell has hung in the tower. And, for fifty-one years, 
le clock has struck the hours and half-hours. Generations ^f 
Mansfieldians have come to know this tower, with its bell and 
its clock, and to love it. 

When Alumni Hall is torn down, probably this summer, 
something of Mansfield will be lost. Although the tower itself 
cannot be saved, the bell and the clock can. These will be stored 
' during the immediate future. However, the hQPff is thftt sufficient 
funds can be raised for the erection of a new tower somewhere 
•ut tlie ^campus where the clock and bell- could' eventually be 

Thus, while Alumni Hall would be gone, the tower clock 
would continue to be heard over the campus and town. That 
cont^ntutift which the clock has j-epresented would be maintaiofd.^ 

And io it fhust be with the college as a whole. Change 6as 
to come, but let it be change that enables the college to con- 
tinue to serve — better than before when possible — its 
most worthy ideals. If Mansfield is to remain true to its heritage, 
these ideals must ahrays be hnsic. 

One hundred tnlrty-oni? memhers of the Class of 1958 will 
be graduated from Mansfield this spring. Let us hope that those 
who return for their Alumni Day reunion fifty years from now 
will be able to survey the canipus of that time and stfli sayi 
"This is my college".

A Sobripet For Edttcaiors 

In chapter twenty-two of Machiavelli's The 
Prince, that portion entitlfed, ''Of the Secretaries of 
Princes," the political realist claims a concept of 
three scales of intelligrence : **Gne which understands 
by itself , a second which understands what is shown 
it by others, and a third which understands neither by 
itself nor on the showing of others." Expatiating, he 
speaks of the first "whieh .is most excellent, the sec- 
ond good, but the third worthies*/* 

In- spite of the inadequate translations ftom 
IMteenth Cen^iwy HnSian, the Florentines wowte 

preserve the original thought. What amazes us hei^ 
is the fact that these words, employed in Twentieth 
Century education, do not in any way evince anach- 
ronistic chairacteristim Even in view (rf iMrweasive 
education, intelligence quotients remain constant. It 
seems, then that Niccolo Machiavelli's words, at least _ 
the few quoted herein, could be accepted by us at 
Mansfield. And generaily, accepti^cer afthWfft pef- 
haps not underBta1ridhif^, s6md to prevail 

* . - 

This highly subjective, but feasible, interpreta- 
tion of individual intelligence might be, then, ap-, 
plicable to all of us, whether we accept it-or not. To 
the class expecting to be graduated at the close of 
the month, it might Serve as a basis foi* self^evaltia- 
tion. Just exactly where in these three scales of 
intelligence, and at what point within its inftnitestl- 
mal degrees, does one stand ? 

At some time or other during the Average period 
of four years, some students have utilized evaluation 
offerings here by taking an IQ examination. Authori- 
ties and statistics then place thto within one of the 
three classifications by to their nameS^an arithmeti- 
cal symbol. Generally, this symbol isT accepted as in- ' 
dicatlve of one's intelligence. And of course, the ego 
of the examinee bloats or shrivels, whichever the 
case may be, to degrees of various proportion. But at 
least, they now are aware of their place. . t 

Then what of those who choose to remain in ■ 

ignorance? Fear of truth is, of course, the reason. 
No doubt there are members of the Senior Class who 
will live in self-deceit for the rest of their lives, 
thinking themst Ives WeweA superaliundance 
of brain matter, and regulating their relations with 
society on that pseudo-basis. Probably some of these 
will be scornfully rebuking our children for their 
**lack of intelligence". ^ 

He who is to be lauded, then, is he who is aware 
of his own capacities and adjusts his life accord- 
ingly. There can be no room for the spurious 
"school-keeping** educator — sooner or" later, he 
will betray himself — to himself. 

And America continues to attach to these keep- 
ers of school the distinction of this title — educator.

The Dogs and ,nii Sig ware 
deadlocked for first place with 
equal 9-1 won-Iost records and 
just one game remaining. With 
a good sised crowd on hand» 
the two teams took the court. 

Both teaais played an excep-

uprising. A driving layup by

margin still more ' but r^ld 
goal by Sam Livingston kept 
the Dogs from striking dis-

The Collegians, fed by

Longuoge Topic 
Of Cluii Speech 

The possibility of English 
becoming an international langr 
uage was the topic discussed 
by Robert Kloss at the final 
meeting of the English Club, 
We4ne8day, April 16. 

•The imijor fault of English 
centers., around the problem of 
spelling," declared Mr. Kloss. 
He further added that this is 
so because there has never been 
a major, or even minor f evisioh 
of English spelling. 

Pointing out the various 
difficulties in the selection of 
one language as a m<Mins of uni- 
versal communication, he stated 
that future citizens of the world 
would most likely be bilingual, 
retaining their individudity, 
but ov^co^ing the lack of 
stand«ndiMd emnniusiicatton.

ness meeting at Hunting Valley

with all the trimmings. 

After the banquet, Salvatore

The million ind a half aca- 
demically talented students now 
in our high schools need more 
challenging classes to make 
the most of their abilities. 

This is the major recommen- 
dation of 200 top educators as 
reported in a new National 
Education Association (NEA) 
report titled, "Finding and Edu- 
cating the AeadMniteally Talent- 
ed Student." 

The NEA report is the result 
of « special year-long project ^ 
on academically talented high 
school students. The report eon- 
tains the final results of an 
invitatiohal conference of 20fi 
educators held in Washington 
in February. 

Mak« Recommendations 

These are the recommenda- 
tions far educating the academ- 
ically talented the top 15 
to 20 per cent of the- high 
SPfaool popidaticm. 

1. A solid four-year high 
school course of the academic 
subjects — English, science, 
inathematics, modem foreign 
languages, and social studies. 
Students should be grouped in 
classes with others of like a- 
bility. That is, a top student 
in math would study math with 
other superior Students. If he 
is only average in English, he 
would study English in a reg- 
ular class.' ' ' , 

2. A rigorous counseling pro- 
gram, with guidance based on 
aptitude and/or intelligence 
test scores and school records. 
I'TM eigbth gra^fe^^^ 

ciiid point — thjc period of the 
student's life in which critical 
choices are made . . the NEA 

3. Special provisions within 
the regular Idgh school for ad- 
vanced work. Talented students 
should take extra courses in 
summer school, such as crea- 
tive writing. An advanced place- 
ment p^rogram should be in ef- 
fect in many schools to allow 
talented students to enter col- 
lege with credit toward grad- 
uation already establidied. 

4. Advanced academic yrork 
for talented students on a low- 
er grade level. For example, 
ninth grade algebra should be 
available to superior students 
in the eighUi grade. 

Talented Child Described 

Describing the talented stu- 
dent, the NEA group, under 

'the direction of James B. Con- 
nant, president emeritus of Har- 
vard University, states,. "He is 
usually a rapid learner, a good 
organizer, and a skillful think- 
er ... he is probably creative, 
curious . . capable of considr 
erable independent study ... 
He may be anyone's child; hid- 
den under almost any number 
of guises — indiflference, utt<lN^ 
achievement, delinquency L ^ ♦ 
He is talented, deserving mudi 
because he can offer much.'*

Thomas L. Thomas, the distin-

baritone And star of radio and 
television will appear October 30 
at ^iranghn. Auditorium.: 

Mr. Thomas, often referred to 
aa "Am e ric a ' a favorite baritone", 
is known to millions through his 
radio and television performances, 
which include frequent appearanc- 
es on the "Voice of Firestone" and 
other network shows. In his con- 
certs Thomas has become, famous 
for his wide knowledge and flex- 
ible song choice of gre^at variety 
and beauty, and for his captivat- 
ingly informal manner of present- 
ation. In reviewing one of his 
concerts, a Philadelphia critic re- 
marked,, "Mr. Thomas sings with 
disarming simjjjicity. He k. jnot 
only a singer, he is an artist. Vocal 
students could learn volumes from 
one of his recitals.'' ^ ' 

Popularity Secret 

One secret of Mr.. Thomas' pop- 
ularity may be found in his atti- 
tude toward the public. "Concerts 
are meant to be enjoyed," he says. 
"If we don't present the music so 
that people really enjoy it with 
us, why give a concert? As a 
connoisseur of songs, and as a 
talented host on the platform who 
enjoys entertaining his guests, 
Thomas has a knack of communi- 
cating his enthusiasm for a song 
he loves — whether it be an aria of 
Handel, and exquisite French art 
song, e humorous ballad, -or a 
rousing tune from a Broadway 
musical. "The main test," he says 
"is hot wHet]^er a song is 'classical' 
or 'popular', but is it good?" 

One feature often included and 
always welcomed in a Tflomas Con- 
cert is folk music from his native 
Wales, for which he is internation-

Age 'Of Analysis 


Plato deacribes a true philoso- 
pher as a lover of the vision of 
truth/ He also claims that his 
concept of Utopia, the ideal com- 
monwealthrwill not come into be- 
ing "until philosophers are kings." 
Perhaps not. And certainly none 
of^s is prescient enough to know 
when philosophers will be kings. 

A Relotive Utopio 

It is becoming increasingly ob- 
vious, however, that Mansfield is 
rapidly approachii^;"wl»t . might 
be classified as a ' "sei&i>ntopisn 
state"; that is, in relation to what 
it has been in past years. I have 
been readily impressed by the fact 
that our cQffeiit" administration is 
selecting some of its faculty mem- 
bers with an eye to cultural back- 
ground, among other requisite 
qualifications. Recently a profess- 
or, in discussing ancient theories 
of law and sovereignty in an Amer- 
ican Government class, read ex- 
cerpts from the initial books of 
the Republic. W|th vehement pre- 
sentation, he resurrected the Hell- 
enic philosophy , (for some, he was 
inif rumehtar in tlh^^ 
into the world) from across the 
centuries, and with facility he 
associated it with experience fa- 
miliar .to those in his classroom. 
Later that same day, "a. musty 
tome, . written hy a tetttonic war- 

monger shortly before the First 
World War, was employed as il- 
lustrative material in a class on 
Gontemporaty Btirdpean History 
by^ t l M st s ame iBrtgaetoiv-" — - 

. Ntting of the Poor 

It appeals, then, that the holder 

of degrees who makes a spurious 
claim to a possession of such vital 
knowledge as just mentioned is at 
last losing his precarious foothold 
on our faculty to the newcomer. 
With no specific individual in 
mind, perhaps we are witnesses 
of^iie beginnings (rf^^e end^ for 
**the flubouta^ Certainly I am 
not claiming that, until the new 
administration assumed power, all 
faculty members were inadequate 
or, at the most, seeond-rate. 

But, for example, there has been 
no acceptable excuse for any of 
the academically-elevated to glor- 
iously spout forth in the* clasuoom 
with horribly inaccurate .pronun- 
ciations of such words as Bedouin, 
bourgeoisie, Tartar, Versailles, 
Goethe, and a few others which 
have Claused us to blanch in our 
very seats.. There was no accept- 
able excuse at that time. And 
there can be none today.

they were greeted upon their arrival by our seemingly-ever- 
lasting Alumni Holl. A few of them most tike ly. commented: 
"Is that thing still standing? Don't thiy ever moke any 
progress around here-*" 

What would be considered 'progress anyway? Is it 
destruction of the old or construction of the new? If we de- 
fine it as the former, Mansfield has mode none in^o great 
while; if the latter, we've come quite a way. Look ^6uf you. 
We're not progressing faster than the eye can see. Freshly- 
pointed buildings gleam in the autumn sunlight ... a tattoo 
of, hgmmers is heard against a background of o bulldozer's 
mechanical grunting . . . once private homes bordering the 
oampus ring with the laughter of happy freshmen at times 
and are hushed with the silence of laborious study at others. 

Certainly, it surrounds us - — material progress. But 
pause. Is this the measurer of progress of on academic in- 
stitution? The famed universities of Europe still have classes 
convening in buildings which are thrcfe to four centuries old, 
yet degree from one of these institutions is highly-prized. 
Why? ^ It is simply, and literally, mind over matter. 

We must note well that rrot only hove three-hundred 
new bodies enrolled at MSTC, but also an equivalent number 
of minds as well. Provisions have been made for their matter. 
We have expanded their living, eating, and studying occorfi- 
modations. Con we also expand their minds? Con we — 
both students and faculty — ^ provide the stimulation and. 
challenge for these individuals who state humbly — ^ not de- 
fiantly: 'Teach me.'? ' 

Franklin D. Roosevelt, in his Second Inaugural Address, 
reminded us that "the test ofjour progress is not whether we 
odd more "^tb the abundance of those who have so much; it is 
whether we provide enough for those who have too little." 

No, the measurer of progress at MSTC will never be 
mode with gallons of paint and feet of board as standards. 
Yes, as publicity releases state, there will be "a new and better 
Mansfield." Any of a million con moke it new; only we can 
moke It better. ^ • ... "■ ■

campus instructor of English 
grmmar, Literature, and Qreative 
Writing, was the fact that she was 
permitted to discharge her duties 
as she deemed feasible. "I was 
given carte blanche," she laugh- 
ingly said. . - ^ ■

Picture Book Story Becomes 
Reality For Professor, Wife 

"My high school history -book 
was the most important factor in 
helping us to decide how to tour 
Europe," laughed Mrs. Clarence 
Mutchler as she leafed through a 
tour book of Rome, "and at last 
■that visit is to become a reality." 

Sailing on the Queen Mary on 
September 17th, the Mutchlers said 
farewell to the states for the dur-

Kreomer Outlines 
Councfl Objectivet 

"One thing we're going to try 

to do is stir up a little more inter- 
est in student governihent," stated 
Clifton l[^Mimer7 president of stu- 
dent Council, when queried as to 
tentative plans "of the group for 
the forthcoming y^ar. The quiet, 
unassuming senior, a native of 
Athens, Pa., continued to outline a 
few objectives of the Council. 

"We intend to proceed with the 
constitutional revision begun last 
year with the increasing of student 
freedom in mind. This would aid 
the students to become self-gover- 
ning to a- greater degree and a- 
waken interest, we hope, in stu^ 
dent politics," he added. 

Continuing in the same general 

vein, Clif remarked that the Coun- 
cil would like to have those dele- 
gates who attend off-campus con- 
ferences, make reports to the Stu- 
body on activities at other col- 
leges which may prove^ beneficial 
to Mansfield. 

The never-tiring, always-smiling 
Clif has seen how other scholastic 
institutions function, having been 
a member of several deputations 
at student government conferences 
at Moravian and Bloomsburg Col- 
leges. In addition, he has studied

In an effort to meet the growing 
demands for foreign language in- 
struction, Mansfield State Teachers 
College is offering German, in ad- 
dition to its French and Spanish 
language courses, Dr. Lewis^W. 
Rathgeber, Tresident of the Col- 
lege today announced. 

"It is the first time in fifteen 
years that German has been taught 
at -the College," Dr. Rathgeber 
stated. Dr. Bernard Baum, of 
the English Department, is pre- 
senting the course. 

"In addition to German, the Col-

position of Administrative Assist- 
ant to Dr. Lewis W. Rathgeber, 
President of Mtosfield ^lafe. 
Teachers College, 

Mr. Pirritano's work will involve 

the performance of administrative 
duties to alleviate the burdens of 
the President's Office.* 

In addition, he will assume the 
Publid Relations of the College, 
as well as administering the Vet- 
eran's training program. 

The new position was approved 
by the College Board of Trustees 
because of the upsurge in student 
enrollment at the^ College this 
jgeptember and the anticipated in- 
crease in the number of students 
in 1960-61. 

Prior to his Mansfield appoint- 
ment, Mr. Pirritano, an Army vet- 
eran and graduate of Temple Uni- 
versity's College of Business and 
Public Administration, was OTa- 
ployed^by the Department of Inter- 
nal Affairs in Harrisburg.

by Robert Kloss 

It was raining quite heavily as 
I acQiried w^ivbr CKMpw,^ in 
my joyous state, I let a smile be 
my umbrella. My teeth got wet. 
I ttied to quiet my heart which 
pounded wildly in anticipation of 
my next class — Polynesian Frog 
Worship 201. Scant momente 
separated us — me, Ambrosia Mon- 
oglot, freshmail, and him, Smer- 
nov Wodka, exchange student from 
the University of Hong Kong. 

I tripped gaily up the stairs of 
iVy-coIored Prentiss. Gaily Freems. 
a senior, picked herself up, and 
gave me a back-hander for what I 
had done. A bit dizzy, I weaved 
into the classroom and took my 
assigned seat. Professor Harpshe's 

"Voice rang out: ^'If you'll put that 
chair back, yoiihg lady, we'll get 
started." ' Slouching in my seat, I 
began to fumble with my pencil 
box to., hide by embarrassment. I 
removed my compact and, opening 
it, glanced in the mirror as I held 
it before me. Reflected within I 
could see him — he of the blue eyes, 
he whom I had loved at first sight, 

-Jie who didn't know I existed. I 
powdered- my nose forty-seven 
times that period. After the lec- 
ture, as we passed from the room, 
Smernov paused in the doorway 
and cast a careless glance at me, 
missing my head by a good foot. 
I picked it up, ran to my room, 
and placed it in a book to press as 
a memento of a tender moment. 

That evening, as I sat alone, 
studying the Freshman Haftdbook 

of Dirty Party Songs, my ivy- 
covered room-mate burst through 
the door, s hou ting. 

"You could have waited until I 
aibcked it." I said. 

No matter," she replied, picking 
splinters from her eyebrows, 
"Smernov is downstaira and wants 
to see you!" 

My face flushed. My blood ran 
cold, I needed either a doctor or 
a plumber. I ran dp'VVin the stairs 
as fast as my feet would carry me, 
which seemed only fair. At the 
landing Smernbv awaited, pipe in 
mouth, ,gazing^ lecherously at 
^iMNile pas^ersby. A million bum- 
iiiig questions seared by brain. 
'^How should I act;?" "What 
should I day?" Fortunately, he 

Then we walked toward kissing 
rock. Slowly his^ hand closed over 

mine, mine over his, his over mine, 
and in a twinkle we had chosen 
sMes aqd I had driven a sizzler 
past short which McGee tried to 
backhand, but which proved too 
tot ioi^ him. ~ - 

Smernov leaned over, and at- 
tempted to kiss me on the cheek. 
I planted a right in his midsection 
which sent him sprawling. Soon 
he returned with a basket of fresh- 
ly-picked sprawls from which we 
squeezed the amber nectar and- 
drank a toast to our newly-found 

He tried to kiss me again^JLl?" 
sisted his overtures, but tl&en he 
began to ply me with quintets, 
concertos, and symphonies. My 
reststsne^ wai failing^^. 

"But n^ 4e^le jamovar . ." 

I replied firmly in the negative. 
He took the negative, rushed to 
the darkroom and made multiple 
prints. I took twelve of the wal- 
let size. 

"But, dollink, whyT'''quotb he. 

"I'm not ^iiKl 
queth I. 

"Den dot's de ent!" quath he. 
Furious, he leaped up, tore his pin 
from my sweater, taking a few 
undergarments with it, and left in 
a huff. About a quarter-mile down 
the road, the axle on the huff 
broke and Smempy was seriously 
injured. His braised gluteus max- 
imus forced him to be hospitilized 
and lost to the squidging team 
for the remainder of the season.

I don't care. I haven't had a date

- Look - Think! 

Greetings, Froshi Now. that-you 
have been properly oriented and 
unduly initi|ited, you are ready to 
seMe d^y/m to the taskt involved 
in completing your first year of 
college. Perhaps you have already 
realized that your experiences of 
the past few weeks have altered 
your general outlook on 4if e in a 
beneficial manner. If so, coni^t^ 
ulations! You are on your way to 
a pleasant, profitable, and satisfy- 
ing college career. If not^ it's 
time you started being serious and 
asking yourself "What am I here 
fort" - 

broke the ice; I poured, and we had 
a quick snoigL out of sight of the 

"I haf d)ecided' to give you a 
break, my leetie di»shky," said he. 
"Vould you veiar my peeri?"> . 

My reply was lost amid the 
swelling of angels' voices accom- 
panied by the Boston .Philharmon- 
ic. Smernov tdok his pin — aym- 
bol of the sculling fraternity, Rho 
Rho Rho, of which he was presi- 
dent — and attached it to my 
sweater. Unfortunately the frat 
was utilizing bowling pins until 
their usual- order arrived ifi the 
mail, so my sweater hung a bit 
low in front. He put his arm 
around my waist and we strode 
across the quadrangle into the 
moonlight. I gazed into his eyes 
and thought, "I would jump 
through hoops for you." He must 
h ave r ead my mind, fo r all at once 

he pulled a hoop from his pocket 

and, snatching up a nearby horse- 
whip, cried, "Here, you, jump 
through this hoop!" I' obliged, 

In a troubled, „ hungry, anxious 
world we tend to look for some 
person, some philosophy that will 
furnish us with the right an- 
swer to the question. We assume, 
of course, that every problem has 
an ^t),swer. But furnishing persons 
wiUi the right answers is like 
using obsolete text books that put 
the ensweri in the back. You 
started with the answer and tried 
to mske it fit the proi^lem. 

t ■ 


To the ' question "What are we 

here for?" We must find our own 
answer. You can, of course, look 
up answer in philosophy texts, the 
Koran, or the Old and New Testa- 
ments. Some of the answers will 
be neat, to the p6int, and so tantal- 
izingly terse that they will confuse 
you. In the long run, however, 
you will have to us^ tiie recorded 
experiences of curious mm. 

The freshmen this year will un- 
doubtedly create new and different 
approaches to my. question. Even 
the upperekassmen can well a^ord 
to stop and take stock of them- 
selves. It would be very interest- 
ing to graph our own progress 
since we entered- ^the- doors of 

MSTC. -What" new and 'Valuable 
ideas did we get and use this year, 
last year, the year before? What 
seeds planted hy our able teachers 
are now bearing fruit? 


Most of us want to be teachers. 
A good teacher starts hot with 
answers but with the questions, 
big and searching qu^Stidhs. The 
world is full of questions and peo^ 
pie who are willing to furnish us 
with readymade answers: however, 
this is not what we are se^khig. 
A curriculum or culture that is 
"answer-dominated" is bound to 
run into trouble, The question be- 
comes fiecondary, the answer prim- 
ary. " ' " ' ■* '"- 

Helping others grow and know- 
ing that you have been an aid to 
their growth and success should 
be the great reward of every 
teacher. Gold and silver tarnish, 
buildings fall apart, but the satis- 
factions of a teacher will last a 
long time. William James put it 
like this: "The great use of a life 
is to spend it for something that 
ottttasta' it" ' ' * * • 

Pinymn SMk Sircciit~ 

UiTdcr- lare^rec t ion o f M r. 
Joseph Conaway, the members of 
College Players are looking for- 
ward to another successful year. 

Several new members have join- 
ed the club and hope to obtain roles 
in the November production. A 
new casting system has been set 
up whereby any member of the or- 
ganization may Au4S^^gt * toU 
in a play. 

Many players have been busy 
with such activities as inventories, 
moving into the clubroom, reading 
plays, and making posters. The 
biggest venture thus far has been 
the float which was entered in to- 
day's Homecoming parade. The 
float committee was under the 
chairmanship of Lois Francis. 
Members of the committee includ- 
ed Carolyn Downer, Jo Ann O'Neil, 
Ethel Preston, Carol Stone, Jean 
Warner, and John Covell. Several 
other nieinbers worked on the 
float, as did all of ^e new initates^

Instructors are a strange breed. 
Tl^y come in varied sizes^ shapes 
(including the sack) and ages. 
However, there seems to be only 
two varities of ability; excellent 
and rotten. , . ' 

The excellent teacher is easy to 
recognize. That is the one for 
whom all the students seem to be 
doing a lot of work. Not just as- 
signing work, but outside things 
that are done because of a desire 
to learn. This teacher may be 
strict, a hard marker and give ter- 
rible assignments but you learn 
something about the subject. This 
person knows his subject and gets 
it across. You may have to woilc

wouldn't even recognize the subject 
that they teach. Maybe their little 
.22 caliber brains are incapable of 
comprehending anything more ab-

ever teach. When you get done 
with their classes you can give 
their life histories from the cradle 
to the grave. (They are dead men-

The only class these people are

could be done in one two-hour ■ 
course instead of about eight 
hours, but constant repetition^

Local Boys Make Good 

by Dyson Schultz . 

Since its inception in January 
of this year, the EJK Sub Shop 

. has grown and expanded, first to 
the west, then to the east, and 
now stands as the only dual- 
location eating place in Mansfield. 

""~^hRr*it8ry <Sf Its success should be 
especially interesting to us because 
the men who made it are all stu- 
dents of MSTC. 


The Sub Shop was bom in a 
small rented space on West Wells- 
boro Street just a few steps from 
the traffic light. Here the boys 
introduced their famous Submarine 
Sandwich which was eagerly ac- 
cepted by, both college and town. 
Being fourteen inches long and 
filled with meat, lettuce, cheese, 
and tomatoes, £Re Sub was found 
to be an excellent snack or even a. 
pickup meal if Mom was off to a 
bridge party. The Sub in Mans- 
field was a smashing success and 
the boys started looking for new 

Heeding Horace Greeley's well- 
MTorn advice, B,K. and J. went 
West to Wellsboro where they in- 
stalled their sandwiches in shop 
No. 2 on East Avenue. Under the 
management of W. Gary Boom, 
who received his teaching credits 
at MSTC last year, this shop also 
flourished. V 


during this time the Mansfield 
shop was not asleep by any means. 
The space was expanded to provide 
room for tables and booths. Event- 
ually the Wellsboro shop was sold 
to concentrate further effort on 
improvement of the Mansfield 
branch. Remodeling, repainting, 
and installation of a carbonated 
soft drink dispenser pt^ved^ ^e 
way for this latest and biggreiit ex- 
pansion to date — the opening of 
the EJK Sub and Pizza Shop on 
East Wellsboro Street. 

The building formerly occupied 
Bud Slxoup's Bafber Shop , now 
hotufes the new shop. The original 
shop is now a luncheonette g^er- 
ing the works in cold and grilled 
sandwiches. . —

can be seen, this method of ac-

you already own a fairiy good 
phonograph. . ^ . 

The new stereo record is record- 
ed in the studios and reproduced 
on your stereo set by what is 
Khown as the "45-45" method. The 
stereo record differs from the con- 
ventional record by nothing mqre 
nor less than a "V" shaped chan-

has had to find adequate living 
quarters for the ever increasing 
influx of students who enroll each 
year. In May of 1958 the college 
administrative personnel decided 
that sorr^ething would have to be 
done to provide billets for Mans- 
field's targer-than-ever student en- 


each side of the groove. Hence, 
the riew stereo cartridge is what 
you might call two needles in one, 
a needle for each groove. 


Incidentally^ did you ever stop 

to figure out how many grooved 
there are on a standard 45 rmp 
record, which plays for- three, min- 
utes? * Naturally, there is one 
■groove. Well, anyway the music 
jm each groove goes to its own 
eaker. Put the two speakers to- 
' 'ther and you have stereo.

iidd if you have accee^s to ah FM

For the men who were assigned 
to this house, the conversion has 
proved to be a happy one. The 
house, referred to as the South 
Hall Annex, has brought seven- 
teen rtew students into the nucle- 
ous of college life. That is to say, 
they have the benefits^ of being 
near the core of the social and 
academic activities al^rded the

The residents have come to rea- 
lize that they have some decided 
advantages in being assigned to a 
home-like dbrmitory. The greatest 
advantage is that of being a separ- 
ate housing unit. Relative quiet- 
ness can thus be afforded as an at- 
mosphere conducive to study. With 
a little co-operation among this 
small number of men, they can 
easily avoid the "quietness of a

found in hotel-type dormitories.

Mr. Conaway, recently appointed 
as an Assistant Professor in

tion of entrepreneur at the request 
of Mtss Allen and Miss Drum, Both

Annex, Aparlmont AidT 

■X^ South Hall 'formally opened its 
doors at 1 p.m., Sunday, Septem- 
bcfr 7, 1958, to 206 men students, 
which includes 78 freshmen and 
transfers, who will occupy its 67 
rnhwng Hiiring fho 1Qfi«.KQ anhdamic 


So that the College could ac- 
comodate more men dorm students 
it has ol>taine;d an annex to South 
Hall, which houses an additional 
15 students. The annex is located 
on Clinton Street, the second house 
on the left across from the "Hut". 

Council in Control 

The dorm's peace officers, Ed- 
ward Harrington, President, Wal- 
ter Millard, Jerome O'Dell, Willi- 
am Maroney, Duane Plummer, and 
a freshman as yet not elected, 
have an increased responsiblity 
^this year due to the fact that the 
Dean of men no longer resides in 
the dormitory. Instead, his foriner 
apartment is housing ten meln. VhT. 
Long is living on Clinton Street 
_next to the annex. 

Changes have been few in South 
Hall over' the summer, but two are

who have seen Jby this neoteric >-

ugly and artifical flaws. Not 
many; indeed, the strength and 
sincerit y of the older style lights, 
continues elevating them to the 
same plane as the younger one. 
Certainly they serve as its guide*

doomed. And even before the first

Dolores Hose: Nymphef 

Although the initial sentence of 
the best seller Lolita ("Lolita, light 

of my life, fire of my loins. My 
sin, my soul.") might be somewhat 
indicative, perhaps, of a "porno- 
graphie novel," certainly this ma- 
jor work of fiction is not a lewd 
book. Vladimir Nabokov's intel- 
lectual tour de force of an off fat^at 
subject, comedy, pathos, and lyric- 
ism-will move even the most jaded — 
voyeur to self-disgust, but it can- 
not be classifi6d--«s an immortal 
book. . .^^ . .: .. L. 

Dolores Haze happens to be a 
12-year-old girl with whom the 
male protagonist has prolonged 
sexual relationships; she is, asicie^ 
from being what he terms a nyni- 
phet, his step-daughter. He mar- 
ried her mother (killed accidental- 
ly thereafter) tn Qitferllo be nwrt" 
the child, in hopes of quenching 
his insatiable lust for her. Follow- 
ing Mrs. Haze's death, the two em- 
bark on a \j^o4y. of lust and 
incest across America. He Jloses 
her in' the end, of course, commits 
murder because of her, and for- 
feits his own life. 

Aufhdir'i Defense 

In an author's note, Nabokov 
defends Lolita against immoral 
claims. Only an inxmoralist (or so 
it seems to him) would attach the

In a match play contest held re-

Chaht the MSTC golfers, led by 
captain John Rudy, eked out a slim 
9^-9 victory over the visiting 
Wilkes College putters. 

' After the complfetiott of 18 holes 
the contest was in a stalemate, all 
tied up at- 9 and 9. '^ith victory 
hanging in the bfilance, the two 
team captains met in a sudden- 
death playoff. Captain Rudy

leader by one, getting a par four 
with his opponent stroking one

*• Low score for the day was 

Rudy's 75, five over par. Other

Esprit de corps, a French term, 
taken from the dictionary is de- 
fined as "a sense of union and of 
common interest amr responsibili- 
ties as developed among a group 
of persons associated together." 

I intend this excerpt to be taken 
in the liberal concept of its mean- 
ing., .I^rp^gh changes in admini- 
stration, novel and progressive 

ideas, Mansfield has come of age 
academically, but more so athletic- 
ally. • 

"And where do you go to 
school?" was the question asked 
of me many times by my cronies 
back home. The reply — Mans- 
field — would bring an inquisitive 
look to the face of the questioner, 
and oft times a slight trace of a 
grin. One of my contemporaries 
Who did his matriculating at East 
Stroudsburg STC would remiurk 
that his Aljna Mater scheduled 
Mansfield merely as a tuiie-up 
for a more worthy opponent. These 
are the lean years I'm speaking of, 
when Mansfield victories Vefe few. 
Although Mansfield has failed to 
set any WQ,rld records, the interval 
between Wins has been slightly 

Rudy, Nores Truimph 
In Summer Tourneys 

John Rudy and Dick Nares, two 
members of Mansfield golfing 
team, achieved considerable ac- 
claim this past summer when each 
won his respective club champion- 

Rudy, a senior, garnered his 
laurels on his home links, the Ber- 
wick Country Clab, after besting 
a field of 78 golfers in a four 
round, three day test. Under- 
stroking his nearest competitor by 
five strokes to Win 290 to 296, John 
had the added, distinction of set- 
ting a new course record with a 
blistering 67 on the first round. 

Dick Nares, a local linkster, won 
the Corey Creek Country Club 
championship - by. . outlasting 80 
stalwarts of the green^'ovier the 
Labor Day weekend; In a matcfc 
play contest. 

Dick, also on the door-step of 
graduation, outpointed his closest 
rival 4<-3 to win a breathtaking 
final round. ' 

These fine performances turned 
in by two of our golfers, who are 
now in the throes of student teach- 
ing makes MSTC's golfing future 
look very bright. 

The general consensus of opinion 
about campus seems to be that the 
student body and, most of all, the 
athletes, do not accept defeat 
neither graciously nor matter-of- 
factly, as^ in the paM. Thus — 
the adhesion and union of com- 
mon interests the "Ftench" refer 
to in the '-corps." 

- While attending the pre-season 
scnnimage. against- Kipg*s—Tind 

standing close to the sidelines, I 
heard one of the senior members 
of the squad shout in encourage- 
ment to his fellow teammates, 
"Let's get in there and fight. 
We're no longer slouches!" Per- 
haps he was contemplating the l^cm Firestone emerged as vic- 
lean years. This display of | tor over Clarence "Bucky" White 
emotion exemplifies the general j in a hotly contested battle, held 
over-all attitude und "spirit" of !in the final w«6k of May, to settle 


the team. 

In my sophomore year, that was 
two years ago — a senior student 
hoped that he could see Mansfield 
defeat Cortland, then a basketball 
power, before graduation. He 
never got his wish; but last year's 
senior class 'idid. 

. Progress is made slowly; per- 
fection hardly ever reached. The 
ultimate dream of every dedicated 
coach, any media, whether it be 
teeii-age, high-school, college, or 
professional, is that illusive 
championship team. True, they 
are difficult to come by; but, to 
quote an old cliche, "champions 
are made not born." As I stated

the action in the second annual 
Men's Tennis Singles Tournament. 
This tournament draws to a close 
the official tennis year and is con 
sidered the feature event on the 
;9Qhool calendar. 

"Bucky", now a senior classman, 
and last year's defending champ- 
ion, took the stand to oppose nine 
other aspirants for his throne. 
The process of elimination took- 
place leaving only "Bucky" and 
Ron, once again, to trade ten- 
nis balls for the title. They were 
the previous year's finalists. 

Ron, a Lebanon, Pa. son, had 
turned back Harold Hansen, 3-6, 
6-2, 6-4 to reach his plateau. 
White set down Bill Pierce in 
straight sets $-3, 6-2 to assert his 
claim for, a second eonsecutive 

Thereby, the stage was set for 
the final match. Ron quickly 
trimmed the erstwhile champion,

the match and college champion-

This, the 26th meeting of the 
two clubs, is a continuation of a 
rivalry which began way back in 
19U6, when both schools were in 
a comparative infant stage. 

Through the years the Mount- 
ies have been able to emerge vie. 
torious only eight times. While on 
the other hand the Lock Haven * 
"Profs" have set back Mansfield 
14 times; three games ended in 
a no decision state. One grame „ 
'\\«tis cancelled and during the 
World War U years the series 
was idled." 

lilansfield will be seeking to get 
back on the winning side of the 
ledger against their oldest and 
keenest rival. - The^-I^ 
gridders have downed the Mount- 
ies three years running. The re- 
juvenated locals of Coach Ed Stel-: 
mack would like nothing better 
than to -derail the invading Eagles. 

MansfiSld^ opened its 1968 sea- 
son in dramatic fashion by push- 
ing over a touchdown in the final 
13 seconds of the . ball game as 
they downed the guest Brockport 
team 7.6. 

The Mounties started their 
drive when Tony Delia Salla broke 
away for a 35-yard sprint up to 
the Brockport 40. From there 
MSTC advanced to and inside the 
Brockport 15. On' an exchange of 
fumbles, Mansfield once again had 
the ball, this time inside the 10. 
ning out, Freshman quarterback, 
yard line. With time rapidly run- - 
Dick Dewey set up the touchdown 
with two complete passes. Larry 
"Hopper" Biddle plunged ovef" two 
yards out for the tying six points. 
John Rudy calmly split the cross- 
bars with hiis place-ki6k to send* 
everybody hijme happy. 

Walt Millard's blocked kick, of 
ed extra point conversion after 
Brockway landed in TD territory 
in the third period, proved to be 
decisive. Phil Dewitt directed the 
MansHeld attack until he retired 
in the fourth quarter, Tony Del- 
la Salla led the Mounties ground 
gain el r s in rushing with 46 yaW l g 
net in six carries. 

Playing their second j^anie of 
tl^e season and determined to keep 
their spotless record alive, a gaU- 
lant effort by "our boys" was 
thwferted by the powerful West 
Chester STC Riams, who had met 
defeat at the hands O f yifllQua^ 
the week before. 

West Chester bogged down by a 
,rain swept field and held score- 
less in the first half erupted for 
a pair of touchdowns in the thirds 
period and another in the fourth 
quarter to defefit Mansfield by a 
19-0 count. 

Mansfield threatened only once 
when it advanced to the West .

where the locals fumbled and lost 
possession. The Mountaineers were 
held to six first downs with only

Employing the current theme of 
progress, the English Club held its 
initial meeting on September 17, 
its primary piece of agenda being 
the continued development of the 
high literary and educational ideals 
for which it stands. 
- --©r, Baum and Dr. Swan, advis- 
ers to the organization, jtr^re pre- 
ent while President Anthony Chi- 
arilli read the club's constitution 
tme the benefit of new members 
who attended. Refering to a pro- 
ject started during the latter part 
of May, 1968, the charter members 
discussed the sponsorship of the 
Shakespearean film Henry V for 
a Straughn Auditorium showing. 
It was decided that the English 
Club would collaborate with Col- 
lege Plliyers in this project.

Committees were established for 
the Homecoming Day parade float, 
with Robert Rupar as chairman; it 
is the plan of the club to join with 
the FlashUght in this venture. 
William Thompson is the publica- 
tion's representative. Each com- 
mittee is composed of wvpn people. 

In accordance with the literary 
ideals of the English Club, it was 
suggested by thW^fficers of the 
organization that members consid-

which they might join. Circulars

Who's Who Committee Selects 
Sixteen Outstanding Students 

MSTC Paper; Book 
Receive New Nook 

MSTC's sister p\|bUcations, The 
Flashlight aiiid Carontawan, have 

shifted the scene of their bee-hive 
activity from a single room in the 
Student Center to larger liccomo- 

dations in North Hall. 

The new "Journalism Suite" is 
located in the rooms formerly oc- 
cupied by the Dean of Women. 
These rooms are on the west side 
of the building, adjacent to the 
first floor well. 

Directly opposite the elevator is 
the first rdom, a general assembly 
area which may be reserved for 
use by other organizations if it 
is not being utilized by one of the 

The second room is occupied by 
The Flashlight and used as a work- 
room for the production of the 
newspaper. It. is rather sparsely 
furnished' at. present, but new ad- 
ditions are expected in the future. 

The last room in the "Suite" is 
the headquarters of the campus 
yearbook. The Carontawan^. This 
room, like The Flashlight's, is also 
used as a laboratory. 
^ The journalistsV needs for added 
room became e^dent last year, 
and requests were made to the 
proper authorities. Due to an ad- 
ministrative change the present 
location became available and was 
offered "to The Flashlight by Pres. 
Rathg6ber. Formal acceptance 
was made immediately, and the 
staffs moved into their . new 
quarters lock, stock, and printing 

The new rooms offer, in addition 
to more space, this \Wtie things, 
like light and heat, which the 
former location did not have. 

The Flashltflir and Carontawan 
extend a cordial welcome to those 
who desire to inspect ,our new 
home. To paraphrase , Mae West, 
"Come down and see us some^ 
time." <^

Mandelkern Success Previously A Dream 

Rivka M«nflelkern — The world's only-r^emalej^t-hadtlld iioUnist 

It' 80 happens we're in a posi- 
tion to offer you the answer to a 
question you might never other- 
wise have thought of: 

H you play a left-handed fiddle 

right-handed, does the music come 
out backward? 

The answer is no. Authority is 
Rivka Mandelkern, only Woman 
professional left-handed concert 
violinist in the^country at the last 

When Mrs. Mandelkern stepped 
to the middle of the stage in 
Sliaughn Auditoriuin for a recital 
ist Wednesday, November 12, at 
iS p.m. „ it marked the end of a 
lonji and dramatic struggle ' — a 
struggle that began years ago with 
the tears of a 3-year old girl. 

UfMiSnlM VioftniM 

As ardent concert goers well 
know, Mrs. Mandi^em is some- 
thing unusual in the world of 
music — a_Jeft-handed violinist. 
^iSlF-i^t does not^ make^ her 

unique, for there have been talent^ 
ed leftxhanded violinists. ' But 

there have not been many. None 
of them have been women. 

Mrs.. Mandelkern has won her 
own way to a place among th^ 
finest modern violinists through 
natural ability, determination and 
long practice. But the one thing 
that eluded her for many years 
was something her own courage 
and determination could not create 
— a fine left-handed violin. 

Now, even tha!| is a rea]|ity. 

Forefinger Amputated 

Mrst Mandelkern was 3-year 
old Betty Iventosch of Berkley, 
California, when a cut and later 
infection made it necessary for a 
surgeon to amputate part of her 
left forefinger. A child of int^se 
musical sensibilities, she learned 
to play the piano. Then, she de- 
cided she wanted to play the vio- 
lin. - .

Recipe For Enioyment 

Take a trio of French convicts — a lovable, intelligent, 
middle-aged murderer; an intellectual forger-con-man; a 
handsome, youthful, homicidal ex-playboy — , add a poisorious 
snake-flomed Adolphe, stir in a confusing love affair, and 
place in a French penal colony at Christmas time. When 
done, server hoUO-on audientce who has"worn their old clothes,, 
preparatory to rolling in the disles. 

The above is the recipe formuloted by Sam and Bella 
SpewQck and passed on to College Players for use in the 
near future. The formula, entitled My Three Angels, was 
concocted 'for the eicpress purposes of tickling funny bones 
and splitting sides, and is miore than worth the two hours and 
slight admission fee one must surrender in exchange. 

ColJege Playfirs, on able organization that is NOT, in 
any way, subsidized by the College, has worked long and hard 
under the directions of Head Chef Joseph Conaway to perfect 
their product according to the Spewock specifications. They 
now invite you to try their pro^uc^rpn in Straug^ri Hall, to-

Letters To 
The Editor 

Me Thankful? For What? 

Within a short period of time, we will celebrate the 
328th onr^lversary of the first "thonks-giving" offered in 
America, somewhere In a wilderness iri Massachusetts. 

We today still offer Thanksgiving in a wilderness — 
the wilderness of a highly-complex, materialistic society. The 
ropid pace set today seems to allow us little time to even 
pause and bow our heads gratefully. Look at the word 
"Thanksgiving", tor example. What are its denotations and 
connqjfctions at j^sent? 

Mention the word to your room-rhate. More than like- 
ly, the first thought to his mind wiill be "vacation." Other 
conhotations, such as turkey with all the trimmings, the tra- 
ditional football game, or biting winds and frozen earth may 
be included in his unthinking response. The original mean- 
^irig, as indicated by the two words used in the comfSosition 
ot the name, has been relegQted to o vtery obscure posi.Tion not 
only by your roorn^roi^ teJyagiy^^ he 

What do you hove to be thankful for.? - A list that long

jQfid not of that of the goverrrment in power ... 

Dear Sir: 

I am writing in reference to 
that monstrpus assembly of people 
called a "chow line." (Perhaps a 
better way of desetibiagr It woitld 
be to term it a grame of "Buddy, 
Buddjj^^ I've .grot a Buddy.")

ever seen that is wider tlian it is 
long. Anyone that has a friend— 
and a few of them do — allows him 
to ^cut" in front of him in line. 
This results in some people having 
to stand in the chow line two to 
three times longer than they 

Oh yes, there is a "line-cutter- 
watcher" appointed from the 
waiters to enforce the no-cutting 
rule; however, he just politely 
turns his head if one of his buddies 
wants to cut and generally con- 
siders the entire thing a big joke 
and an easy way to earn his ,60^ 
an hour. 

I think it horrifying that so- 
calledcollege people would take 
par^J^ such child's play in the 
first place. But, there is little we 
can do about changing them at 
present. However, what can be 
done abojut line-cutting:?

Ifiot in these classes you may speak your mind, think 
freely, and critize, intelligently and openly, anyone or any-i 
thing, including the government ... 

that from these classes you will go forth to build 
better world and not a better bonnb. 

And, if you hove nothing to thank God for, for yourself, 
do it for someone else. ThanK Hinn for anyone of those boys 
who lie in Ardennes, I wo Jima, or along the Yolu; . They're 
#iere that you might do so. — — - — - - : — 

A Very, Very Sad Tale 

Once Ijpon a time there was a college. It was like 
most other colleges in many respects, and, of course,^ differed 
from them also. ^ 

• It had good teachers and bad teachers, „ good students 
qnd bad students. It had classes and outside activities just 
like other schools did. But the students at this college acted 
strangely towar^ those extracurricular doings. 

They'd go all out to support the athletic teams— up to 
a point. If the team happened to lose a few games apd 
f«^ed an extra lift, could they counfW the 
give it to them? Certainiy not, When neededmost, they 
cored least. ^ - 

These were the same students who continually com- 
plained about lack of activity on weekends. "Give* us some- 
thing to do!" they cried. Their plea was soon answered. A 
movie was arranged for Saturday and a musicdf program 
Was given the previous night. Weirie the students there? Of 
cojurse they weren't. They hod packed their suitcases and 
"guhe horne. Most of those remaining didn't give the activity 
o chonee to prove its worth. , . 

Welt, that's how it's been going at thatissltisge for the. 
past few months. It's hoped that it doesn't remain that way, 
because school spirit — the life-blood of q college — does not 
jtay stable long undf ^ p sh eon d^tferisr^ tt fe l ls/ nand the 
school with it. r ■ ■ " . - 

What's that? Oh yes, the sad port. iTtie name of the 
coJIege is Mansfield. ^ 

You have taken the first step 
toward eliminating it already. I'm 
certain some member -of Student 
Council will read this and take the 
proper steps to ei^oitee rule. 
The Flashlight is only your voice; 
Student Council is the remainder 
of you in such matter^^ 

" The Editor 

Dear Sir: 

I thought you might be interest- 
ed in some convments from one of 

last year's alumni, who returned 
for Homecoming this year. 

Food Si 

d Or Bad? 

by Anthony Chfit^Q 

It is always pleasant to get a 

chance to renew old acquaintances 
and to see Mansfield again. This 
year was especially pleasant. 
There have been so ftiany changes 
for the better, ftt the college that 
most of us were not sure which 
was the most impressivci^ 

The new pskit on the fiut an^ 

Student Center certainly have made 
that dingy area behind the Boy's 
Dornji 100% more attractive than 

As a former President of the 
Men's Dorm Council, I was 
glad to see n«w drapes. We 

were looking for drapes in the 
men's loi^ngre throughout my 
four years and, no doubt previous 
classes looked for them during the 
preceding decade. The fact that 
they have finally arrived is a real 
credit to this administration which 
has been able to get things done 
at long last. 

I was also glad to see that the 
Day Jftu^ents finally had drapes

The topic of the food which is 
served in the college dining room 
is one of general discussion- on the 
campus, involving the majority of 
boarding students, as well as those 
memhers of the faculty who hai^ 
had occasion to dine there. The 
consensus, in broad terms, is that 
the ^d is poorly prepared „ and 
not varied enough. 

Certainly the theme of food is 
a highly subjective one, involving 
personal tastes which have been 
instilled in us since birth. It is 
obvious, then, that" ~ only r^getM' 
should be utilized in jfae presenta- 
tion of this matter. 

Listing of Facts 

1. Meat is purchased according 
taorthe National Scale of Grading. 
There are six standards-^the col- 
lege usuiilly 'Pirchases meat from 
the second group. 

2. Iijeat is lisually prepared in 
the steamers or in the ovens, or 

3. At the time this article was 
being written, the ovens were de=^ as much as the tempera- 
tures "stated on the thermometers 
were not always accurate, The 
steamers r^eived their power 
from the main college power plant 
and each steamer has seven pounds 
pressure -fo? cooking purposes.^ 

4. If meat is what the students 
consider "bad," the fault may lie 
witl^ the cooking and not the meat. 
(This is a sti^tein^nt from the 


, 5. fiach meal costs tJie student 
on the average of only forty-three 
cents including labor; mainten- 1 
ance, laundry, staples^ ete. i 

6. Ram is purchased bdned, de- f 
fatted, and rolled. ; — 1 

7. Por)c is cooked by the steamr \ 
ing process in order to "retain ' 
better flavor." 

8. The green color sometimes 
seen in the ham is ''preservative." " 

9. It is not possible to have 
fried eggs for brea|tfast in as muchj 
liTTherr^aYe ISoT propwr 

for preparing them in that manner. 

10. It is not possible to have 
pancakes and sausage foir break-l 
fast, in as much as there is not 

I sufficient help in the ki^hen to 

I prepare th&m ftt that eai4y 
and at the same time keep the 
line stocked; however, pancakes 
and sausages are served for lunch.: 

11. The Hitchen help problemi 
is considered critical. 

12. The exact number of stu 
dents for whom to cook is never 
known. This accounts for the 
prodigious amount of leftovers 
which are, at times, served as 
complete meals; and of course,, 
also for the times when the serv^ 
ing line runs short of f ood. 

IS. The college is now on the 
bid program for the purchasing of 
meat. • 

The above facts were noted in 
an interview with the dietician.

New Professor Finds 
Small City Soothing 

"Upon receiving. my Doctorate, I looked Into the col- 
lege field for a position. A favorable response from Mans- 
field came, and here I am," , laughed Dr. Samuel Poi-tnoy, 

m^t r«c9nt addition to Mdns 

Paradoxically, Dr. Portnoy, in 
his undergraduate work, attended 
the College of Agriculture at the 
University oi Wisconain, having 
previously studied social sciences 
at Long Island, New York, ^rom 
1942, when he was a senior, until 
1945, he served in the Air Forte 
as a gunner on a B-24. 

iReturriing to civilian life, Dr. 
Portnoy once again changed his 
field of study— tliis time, to Edu- 
cation, taking history for his maj- 
or. In 1947 he was granted the 
degree of Bachelor of Science in

entered the University of Chicago 
where he earned his Master's De-

This is Dr; Portnoy's firtt full- 
time college position. He has had 
teaching experience in the Chicago 
secondary schools, as wall as part- 
time experience in the Chicago 
City Junior College system. 

When asked to comment on his 
personal views of Mansfield, the 
professor, after much deliberiition, 
submitted the following stftienuBnA: 
"The contrast between educational 
work in a large metropolitan area 
and Mansfield is obvious and sharp. 
It is pleasont to mQve jkway from 
the big city rat-race which can 
become a very un-nerving thing 
with regard to teaching and sim- 
ply, living. Small town friendli- 
ness, openess and essential honesty

village like Mansfield.

Chorus Chonges Title 

Seventy-five members of what 
was formerly referred to as the 
Freshman ChorUs have voted 
unanimously to be known in the 
future as the Campus Choraleers. 
lliis was dbiM chi^sr to alleviate 
the impression of the organization 
being limited strictly to members 
of the freshman class. Rather, 
membership is open to anyone from 
the entire student body. Under 
Chrdirection of CharlM Fowler, the 
Choraleers have begun rehearsing 
Fred Waring's "Song of Christ-

Secondary To Check, Evaluate Self^^^^^^ 

A critical self-examination in the secondary department 
began officially November 3 when first proposals by subject- 
matter groups were presented dt o departmental meeting. 

Ulfder the leadership of its tem- 
porary head, Earl W. Seibert, the 
secondary department will make 
recommendations for revision of 
the general education requimnenta 
of Mansfield graduates. 

:^r-ln a memo to the faculty. Dr. 
Seibert said, "Study groups deal 
with immediate problems and 
long- view developments. The most 
immediiite concern is revision of 
the curriculum . . . the subjects at 
MSTC fall into three groups: 

1, General Education, 2. Profes- 
sional Education, 3. Specialization 
and 'Electives ... The Committee 
on Instruction of the Board of 
Presidents recommends from 48 to 
60 hours of General Education. 
The local faculty will decide on 
the final number as well as what 
subjects are to be ineltided (except 
as Mow). ' - , 

Minimum Courses 

"The State Council of Education 
on June 18 . . . fixed the minimum 
undergraduate course distribution 
in general education for all teach- 
ing certification as follows: Eng- 
lish, 16 hours including t^o hours 
in speech and two in developing 
reading} social studies, six hours; 

fine arts, tln^ hours; philosophy^

three hours; physical education, 
four hours, including " Oftc activity

Thomas CapHyotes 
Stroughn Audience 

Thomas L. Thomas, "America's 
Favorite Baritone", backed up his 
right to claim that title in his 
appearance on the stage of 
Straughn HaU, Saturda^i October 

Mr. Thomas, singing, before ap 
audience of 900, demonstrated his 
belief that "concerts are meant 
to be enjoyed" by presenting a 
program" unrv^rsal apiwiil. 

Accompanied by Jacob Hahne-- 
man, Mr. Thomas enthralled the 
audience for over two hours with 
his singing ability and captivating 
manner of vocal presentation. 

The inital portion of the pro- 
_gmin consisted oi British ballads 
and French chansons. Mr. Thom- 
as ^concluded: the first .half of the 
presentation with his rendition, <e>f 

Pioniirt' Pefformt 

At this point Mr. Hahneman 
gained the spotlight with his 
talented performance of Hszt^ 
Etude in D Flat Major, Lotus 
Land, and Chopin's Fantasie Im- 

Welsh folk ballads— Mr. Thomas's 
forte — and native American music 
constituted the remainder of the 
evei^ing's im^sctaiitment. • 

The audience showed their ap- 
preciation of the distinguished 
baritone by bringing him back for 
three <5urtein calls

among other selections. Green-

Age Of Analysis 

by Anthony Chiarilli 

Ih some colleges it seems that 
' an administrative plethora creates | 
a paradox to the aims of education. 
A concentration of power in the 
administrative offices, a virtual 
bureaucracy, appears to exist, con- 
trolling the faculty and student 
body in such a way that the rela- 
tive 4^tus of the bodies is not al- 
ways clear. Who works for whom? 

As expansion continues, adminis- 
tration grows, spawning weakness- 
es" and dangers which might very 
[ well be instrumental in. oversha- 
^~ dowing any legislative voice which 
is a ba;sic right of American stu- 

- Christmo* Tree C o wimo nd 

Outstanding in these ^iffusing^ 
gangers iS the development of a 
"Christmas tree icHain of com- 

"""^mand." The professor, having a 
need, contacts the head of the de- 

— partment, who in turii present the 
matter to the deans, who then 
confer with, the various business 
mai&agers, who see the main dean, 
et cetera, et cetera. If the matter 
is '.'deemed of . sufficient import- 
ance," it eventually reaches the 
(losii ed stage in the "hierarchy of 
command." One wonders, in view 
of misrepresentation in passing the 
information on, what a request 
' sounds like by the time it reaches 
the level of decision. Needless to 
say, the Christmas tree dhain of 
command provides ample and temp- 
ting oppbrtunity . to "pass the 

Currying Favor 

Another danger exists- in that 
,. a college's augmenting number^ of 
administrative personnel increases 
the number of persons "with whom 

tJwrloi^^y^ctrity member** and the 

lowej student representative must 
curry favor. Once again, the 
'' Christmas tree must be climbed. 
. As has been pointed out in the 
annals of modern literature, the 
administrator * *'finds himself at 
war with anything, he does not 

Still another important fallacy 
of excessive administration is the 
lact that the «ffierency of the fac- 
ulty Is reduced due to the time 
membersi» must give to the "meet- 
ing of administrative details"^— 
■details such'as "teaching records, 
examination grades, absence re- 
ports, classroom temperatures, re- 
search underway," light bulbs in 
use,^ procedures, various bulletins 
and memos, seminar reports, eras- 
er reports, and so forth. It seems 
reasonable to assume that the lar- 
ger the adihinistrrftion becomes 
the .mpre time it has to require 
such reports of the faculty. 

Adminittrolion Cost 

Finally, the uost of suciraiF ad- 
ministrative staff for any college 
must be considered. If it is to be 
viewed within ouf own state, would 
it not be more practical to elimin- 
ate superfluous administrators, and 
with theit" salary, give the faculty 
member a deserved raise in pay? 
Might it be, then, the non-teaching 
bureaucracy which will sooner or 
later block any college's progress- 
ive journey to better means and 
methocbs oi «ducaMottf" 
. Certainly it wbuld be unjust to 
finish without lauding those nece»- 
sary administratprs who feadily 

give their utmost for the benefit 
of the faculty and the student body, 
and who sincerely believe in the 
main objective of a college — the 
teaching of young men and women. 
However, in this critical analysis, I 
have not been concermed with them 
or the necesary work which their 
position entails. Rather,''ihe sub- 
ject has been that heavy and op- 
pressive fog which has been, and 
continues to be, one of the decisive 
factors in blocking out the sun of 
American education.

Reploce "4M^lmM'* 

„ Picaste JiftS- come to MSTC. Of 
course, the reference is to his 
painting, a reproductlolS at that, 
which hangs in the first floor well. 

Copies though they be, the paint- 
ings are the first step in a long- 
range project of the Administra- 
tion and Art Club to replace the 
nepia prints of yesteryear with 
brighter prints. ♦ » ♦ 

The colorful new additions are 
copies of some famous modem 
masters' works with emphasis on 
the Expressionistic Movement. 
Prints thus f^r purchased and dis- 
played represent such artists as 
Cezanne, Picasso, and .Van Gogh. 

The Administi-ation is meeting 
the cost of the pictures, and the 
Art Club is framing them to hold 
Jown expenditures. , 

English Club Plans To Sponsor Film 

"Once more unto the breach, 
dear friends, once more . . . when 
thelblast of war blown in our ears, 
then imitate th^ action of the 
tiger!" So speaks King Henry V 
in Prance, before Harf leur. And 
as a result of the efforts of the 
newly-formed English Club, the 
student body will have the? oppor- 
tunity of seeing this famous scene 

enacted on the Straughn cinema- 
scope screen on the es«rening of 
January 27th. 

No Admission Fee 

- Starring Laurence Olivier, King 
Henry V has once before been pre- 
sented on this campus, it having 
been shown to two capacity audi- 
ences. At that time an admission 
fee was charged. At the January 
presentation, however*, -there will 
be no admission charge. Although 
sponsored by the English Club, the 
cost for this venture will come 
from the Student Council fund for 
student activities of this nature.

Pity The Poor Pilgrim 

by Dyson .Schultz^ 

The twentieth-century American, 
looking back from his material 
well-being, must consider the 
Thanksgiving pilgrtnrteTiave been 
a pitiful soul. That poor fellow, 
hacking his existence out of an 
alien forest, was plagued with 
harsh winters, disease, wild ani- 
mals, and he didn't even know 
what was beyond the Westeni hill. 
On the other hand, we enjoy all 
the advantages of being members 
of a highly complex society. I'm 
glad I'm not a pilgrim! 

'*Nb Pt o bt tim 

As it is, I haven't got a worry. 
I'm free to celebrate my Thanks- 
giving before a table heaped high 
with good food from our .turkey 
ranches and truck farms. Yes, 
we've really got that forest lick- 
ed. Apparently then, we have no 
problems at all compared to the 
pc2q;>le of ^hat fii*st Thanksgiving. 

The ipilgrim depended on the 

clouds to warn him of approaching 
storms, while we are forewarned 
by^ science and well-equipped to 
.nect them. We have only one 
cloud to worry us — the mushroom 
of an H-bomb and its deadly snow. 
I'd rather see ten feet of the white, 
fluffy kind. . . • 

During the long winters, disease 
dogged the footsteps of the pil- 
grim. Sometimes a hundred or 
more of his fellows would ^die in 
a single year! Science again has 
come. to. our rescue with the~ means 
to defeat the kiHer small-pox, 
pneumonia, and scarlet fever. We 
worry now about cancer, which in 
one year kills many times jthe 
number.of people- in the pilgrim 
colony. ■ .• 

Our Only •Bear 

I've never seen a bear outside a 
zoo, but settlers had scores to 
contend with. We lucky people 
have only one, a big Red one that 
eats countries whole and threatens 
to swallow us up. He casts his 
shadow across our Thanl<sgiving 
talrffes, making us even more con- 
scious of the rights which we en- 
joy. Personally, I'd rather have 
a hundred of the fuzzy ones. 

Maybe the pilgrim didn't know 

what was beyond the Western hilf, 
but I'm afraid I dp- I know what 
is there and now I'm worrying 
about space. I wonder w l ia t ~we'lh 
find out there? ^ 

Old John Pilgrim" didn't have an 
automobile. The poor fellow had 

walk everywhere he \^ent. Of 
course, there were no six-car crack- 
ups, whole families at a 
time.' The pilgrims' death toll 
from every eause would look like 
nothing compared to just one day's 
traffic toll today. 

. Just as I said before, that lucky 
pilgrim really had it made. All 
he had to do was live out in the 
nice woods, suffer through each 
winter, and kclep diseases and 
wolves at bay. He didn't- have to 

.vorry about the big bombs, the 
Red bear, and Sputniks. He was 

ealljf 4uc]^k|-:^» — -——^ — - — — 
I wish I were a' pilgrim!

"I see where the Old Lady of 
Thi^eadneedle Street was sttkken 
by an auto, Watson," remarked 
Sheerluck Holmes as he tossed 
aside the. spori^s page of the Daily 

"Yes," I answered, laughing. 
"Ghastly accident,, what ?" 

He took up A glowing cinder 

with the tongs and lighted the 
long cherry-wood pipe he was 
prone to smoke when in a medita- 
tive mood. After taking a lengthy 
draught on the mixture, his fa- 
vorite — two parts Latakia, one 
part Pekoe, one part Shantung — 
he replied, his foot dangling in the 

"Yes." : ; 

Holmes' power of observation 
never ceased to amaze me. 

It Mras a cold morning of eiarly 
sjlring and we sat after breakfast 
on either side of a cherry fire in 
the old room at No. 221 B Baker 
Street. Holmes gazed into the 
flames for a few more moments, 
then rose and walked to the win- 
dow. Our apartment overlooked, 
on the east, the Thames (pro- 
nounced Tems), which was always 
a source of inspiration to the fer- 
tile mind of my famed companion. 

"Bloomin' fog,-' shouted Holmes 
as he wheeled about and returned 
to his chair. I raced to the win- 
dow, Most certainly, tJie fog 
, which I had planted in the yard 
^ few weeks earlier had begun to 
blossom and iiAiiMrad above the 
dun-colored soil. Suddenly, behind 
nie. a strange scraping noise be- 

"What is that you're fiddling 
with there, Holmes?" I inquired. 

"My Stradivarius, Watson," he 
replied somewhat haughtily. "You 
know I like to play when I am 
pensive." He drew the bow light- 
ly across the strings and the 
gypsy-like, strains of Brahms' 
Concerto No. 2 in Asia Minor 
leapt ^forth. 

The melody was no^ sooner fin- 
^shed-'when there was a sudden

strode rather briskly to answer it. 
Upon opening it, however, I saw 
no one. Abruptly, a voice from 
the vicinity of my trouser bottoms 
said. Cheerio." I looked in the 
direction from which the greeting 
had come. My gaze disclosed a 
coal-black raven standing there. 

•*Mr. Poet'* he inq^red: 
"No," I replied, "You've got the 
wrong chamber door. Kd is two 
houses down." Begging my par- 
don, he took his leave, and I re- 
turned to our sanctum. 

"I say, Watson," Holmes inter- 
jected rather suddenly, "how about 
a spot of tea?" I agreed and he 
vanished into the pantry, return- 
ing minutes later with a spot "of 
ea on a blotter which I eDamined 
with a great deal of interest. 

Soon we set to enthusiastic talk 
about former murder cases. My 
companion and I had a delicious 
relish for conversation. It was 
kept in a large jar in the pantry, 
refrigerated so as not to spoil. 

"Remember the Wycliffs of 
Dover, Watson?" he asked. 

"Rightol Wasn't she the blonde

"Yes — always carried two pistols 
in her handbag. Hmmm. That 
reminds me of a story. Care to 
'lear It?'^* r ' 

I answered ^iffirmatively and he 
vOld me the story. It was one of 
he dullest I've ever heard. 

Brrinnnggg! The phone called 
cheerily in the immediat e sil ence. 
Holmes answered it, spc^e briefly 
the caller and hung up. 

"A case ?" I asked hopefully. 

"Yes, Watson. The call was 
from Liverpuddle, a suburb of 
Liverpool. You recall, of course, 
he Leicester (pronounced Lester) 
SsLate we visited recently? Well 
Sir Lester (pronounced Leicester) 
.las been the victim of foul play." 

"You mean ... 

"Yes. He been pecked to death 

by his pet chickens!" 

We immediately motored to 
Picadilly, cycled to Waterloo, and 
rode a cock-horse to Banbury Cross. 
As we bbiarded the bus for our 
destination, I . handed the conduc- 
tor a t^-pound note. He gave 
me one pound, seven ounces change 
and we climbed to the upper deck.

Indifferent Attitude 

"The permanent rural or semi- 
rural settler seems far less inter- 
ested or eager to experience direct- 
y, or even vicariously, the sensa- 

ions of life in the metropolitan 
ireas of the country at a time 
when^ the United States is so 
iirectly involved in the crucial 
ssues of world politics. When the 
>tomifr ^d hydr oge n bombs have 
created what is striking referred 
to as a balancjs of terror, it seems 
:ather surprising, and, frankly, 
somewhat unfortunate that Amer- 
cans in certain areas appear to be 
angaging in a kind of 'life as 
jsual,' blithely unresponsive to 
.he stimuli much in evidence else? 

"There seems, 'to be little virtue 
n the worship of the status quo. 
Such an attitude, where it exists, 

ippears quite inadequate to the 
challenge and needs of the present

Proper Guidance 

by Floyd Lounsbury 

My name is Berlock Shomes, I 
im a guidance counselor's counsel- 
>r. ghat's right, a pnooper's 
mooper. I'm really in the busi- 
less — I even manufacture a neat 
ittle kit for prying into people's 
msiness. It has an ear trumpet, - 
'lashlight, lock-picking " material, 
md all that jazz. . 

I don't go in for all this hioe 
cind of guidance; it might be all 
-ight for the nice kind of people, 
)ut I'm not nice: I love to build 
ip hiy ego at the expehse^^ others, 
'n my opinion, the proper inter- 
/iew lihduld go as follows: 

Counselor: How have you been 

lately, Johnny? Flunked any 
classes? (Note the negative at- 
- titcide) 

fohnny: I'm fine and my grad er 
are good. 

Counselor: Hmmm. I heaV yoiU 
1 haven't been going out much. 
What's the matter? 

lohnny: I'm going steady with a 
girl back home. 

Counselor: Are you sure you know 
what^ you ^ want ? You are 
rather >ou»g— ^oidy 29 — you 
don't want to make rash decis- 
ions. After all, one must live up 
to the woixderful* traditions of : 
our sclfeol. Now you just write 
that girl ^t home that you want 
to be fiw^e and enjoy youraelf. 

lohnny: O.K. — 

Now see what ^I mean? That is 
good constructive advice.' Johnny 
has something to build on. He 
doesn't have to wonder any longer. 

Of course, if you could pry into 
Johnny's life and find out some- 
thing about him, you would use 
your information to the best ad- 

Not by helping Johnny! Why 
that would be kind and not in the 
spirit' that I try to foster, but as 
a means of making Johnny feel 
uncomfortable and under your 
thi^mb. Just think of the feeling

sipping tea and making" jokes 
about movie titles. Afteir our

in which the crime had taken

examined the body quickly and

upon it the single word rashni.

"Your husband. Lady Cynthia, died

"But what of the paper with the 
murderer's name upon it?" 

"Did your husband not serve 
with the 46th Royal Fusiliers lA

the Irrawaddi tongue fluently?" 

"Why, yes, Ilr# Holmes^ he did.^ 

"This scrawled word, rashni, is

The subjective element must en-

as well as when the writer voices 
specific instances in ort^CJ^

From twenty persons approach-

There has been no discrimination 
in stating the foUowingnquotations:

"No extra help in view of increas- 
ed enrollment. Never fried eggs. 
No seconds becoming routine story. 
No extra hours in order to allevi- 
ate the long food lipes — could

2 Charleen Van Pelt: 
"The food itself is good. But it 
could be prepared in a more ap- 
petizing manner. The way they 
cook some of the food is short oif 
iriot." . 

3. Diifina Briiening: : 
"They're serving just as much 
food as they did last year — but 
unfortunately there are about 100 
more students this year." 
_4. J^nne Soloman: 
"One time I opened a rotten egg 
at breakfast. I'm not particularly 
fond of rotten eggs." 

6. Jerry O'Dell: 
"They have a beautiful breakfast 
at noon on some days — pancakes 
and sausage." ; 

6. Steve PopovicH: i .:■ 
"1 would like to see" more fresh 
raw vegetables. I think our diet 
has too much starch food, and not 
enough of the vegetable element." 

7. Lois Churchill: - 

"They do have a problem prepar- 
ing food for so many individual 
tastes. Several foods are prepared, 
however, in a manner distasteful 
to anyone." 

8. Pat Corey: 

"I thin^ we should be able to have 

seconds on meat ' whenever we want 

it. " - - ^ - - - ■. 

9. Marlene Kjlingman: 

"I think that the noon meals for 
the most part, are lousy. At night 
they're pretty bad— they wouldn't 
be if the meat were done better.

13. Dick Mitchell: 
"There is no excuse for the poor

14. Marilyn Christ: 
"Since my freshman year, the noon

15. Clifton Kreamer: 
"The fault does not lie with the 
dietician, but in the preparation. 
Judging from last year, the meals

Douglas NarralM 
Picture On Russia 

Neil Douglas, explorer, author, 
and lecturer, narrated the color 
film, "Russia— The New Face," in 
Student Assembly, l^iesday, Oct- 
ober 28. 

The film, taken by Mr. Douglas 
on a recent tri^ to the Soviet, was 

a complete and unrestricted por- 
trayal of the USSR. 

The motion picture, illustrated, 
among other things, aspects of 
Russia such as its productive capa- 
bilities, music, opera, ballet, trans- 
portation, attitudes toward the 
United States, and feelings on 
Communism. The ""film captured 
the native art and life of the 
Soviet people. 

A civil engineer and Ail-Ameri- 
can football star, Mr. Douglas is 
a Pfellow in the American Geo- 
graphical Society, the British 
Glacialogical Society, the Explor- 
ers Chib tt^^New^Yorit. ^

Mansfield, Po.^ Novembei:, 1958 



Hopp^ters Ready For Full Season 

Open Schedule At Bfockport:; 
Bolstered By Seven Veterans 

Mounts End)Season, 
Sport 2^ Rec6r4 

Mansfield's Mountaineers of the 
m^diroh, temiinated their season 
two weeks agro with the ledger 
reading: Credit, 2; Debit, 6. 
* , Ending with a loss, the season 
had begun in September in" an op- 
posite manner. 

Home teaiji T, yisitora fi — the 
home team befing Mansfield, the 
visitors Brockport. Thus, MSTC 
successfully launching its 1958 
gridiron season. ""^r 

The following Saturday, the 
locals of Coach Ed Stelmack held 
powefful West Chester STC at 
bay for two quarters, then faded 
in the second half, to lose,. 19-0. 
This was considered a mean ac- 
complishment, for the titans of 
West Chester ranked as a giant 
in Pennsylvania football. 

Optimism prevailed. The Mounty 
efforts, in games one and two, in- 
dicated the way to a winning S(^- 

A poor Mansfield secondary de- 
caused the Mountaineers to 
contests to Bloomsburg, 32-6, 
and Lock Haven, 19-6. 

The Red and Black managed to 
get bac|t on the winning trail 
against newcomer Cheyney, 27^0. 

The Mounts, spoiled by success, 
traveled to Edinboro and fell be- 
^foi* the Red Raiders, 26-6. 

Coach Stelmack's boys came 
close to registering their third win 
of the season ai^inst Kutztowri, 
when a field goal attempt by John 
Rudy fell short. MSTC bowed 
16-14. ' ' 

The Mountaineers traveled to 
Shippensburg to wrap up the sea- 
son. The host Shippensburg eleven 
inflicted the worst defeat in re- 
cent years on a Mansfield team. 
~ W4i€n the sihoke! <rf biltt*-had 
cleared, SSTC was on the long ^d, 
of a 64-6 count. 

Thus, the gridders wind up the 
season with a rather unimposing 
2-6 record. They failed to improve 
on last season's 8-3 show. 

The Mounts began the season 
with only sixteen upperclassmen 
represented on the sqiiad. Much 
of the time-^ the quarterbacTcing 
duties were taken over by fresh- 
men Dick Dewey and Geoi^e Shu- 

•| Injuries played a prominent part 
in the undoing of the Ideals.- At 
one time or other, such front line 
men as Moore, Millard, Ayers, 
f Biddle, Delia Sala and Dunnigan 
! spent time on the sidelines. 

The underclassmen, with a year's 
baptism under fire, will be anxious 
to improve on this season's losing 
record. — — — — 

"And That's Where You Throw It . . ."—Coach Bill Gibson gives 
apparently unecessary information to returning lettermen (from 
left to right) Hal Hanson^ Ron Firestone, Mike Gamble, Gib 
Moore, Joe Martini, AI Zyga, and \3ob Felt who brought^ |if STC 
itft. first winning, season in a d«Bade last year. 

Directly across from my home 

's a playground. And, it being but 
he piroverbial stone's throw away 
from my doorstep, I had occasion 
to spend a great deal of time ca- 
vorting about said jlaygrpund this 
past summer. '* " 

A playground, especially in its 

productive torrid months, is a bee- 
hive of activity on any given day. 
For the average youngster who 
uses to the utmost the contribu- 
irns of his city's taxpayers, the 
day begins immediately after sun- 
rise and doesn't end' till .suftdown. 

Whoever said that there are no 
two people alike certainly knew 
what he was 1»Hcing about. For 

ach tot and toddler, whether he 
be loud, or quiet, spoiled or soiled, 
i? representative of Ms own indi- 
vidual dream world and certainly 
can be difficult to figure out at 
times. - ' , 

During the course of the sum- 
mer, like the great arbiter that I 
am, I was caHed upon to make 
many an important decision as I 
umpired contests. Is it a ball or 
a strike?; is he out or safe?; is 
it in or out of bounds? — the 
world's fate hinged on .the answer. 

As I have stated,- each child 
was different from any other. For 
instance, there was the type who 
didn't or wouldn't accept my un- 
biased decisions. You might say 
I wfte suspected ttf being partial,

The teams in the playoffs from

memorable than the rest. 

Whether you attribute the at-

Mine was Bobby, five and small 
for his age. There he^as, sported 
in baseball toggery — a faded, 
much-worn, purple uniform, with 
red letters spelling "Yankees" in 
an uneven line across his chesty a 
fairly hew cap, a "kid-size" mitt, 
and sneakers — dragging a thirty- 
two punce bat which was as tall, 
if not taller than, he! 
. Bobby, rejected by the older boys 
for not playing their "brand'- of 
ball, and above the youths his own 
age because they couldn't or would- 
n't play his "brand'* of ball, was 
leffln TO middle of tRe^ field, all 
dressed up and no place to go. 

A playground, though full, can 
be empty at times. 

At this point, Feartess Freddy 
stepped in and suggested a ganie 
of catch. Thus, with an overabund- 
ant display of personality on my 
part, and the overanxiety that is 
youth, the Initial contact between 
man and boy was made. 

After brushing away the tears 
that boys aren't supposed to shed 
(so said Bobby), the first steps in 
recovery were taken. We quickly 
cast aside the -game of catch be- 
cause, Bobby said, he would rather 
hit than catch or even eat. 

It took a great deal ^f persua- 
sion to get Bobby to abandon the 
conventional-sized bat, and ad^t, 
fof hiS' use, the stamdard size 
— a fifteen-ounce model. After 
a few minor adjustments in stance, 
grip, stride, and follow-tilirough, 
we were ready to "play ball!" 

You say Rome wasn't built in a 
day ? My protege took about 
twice as long as Rome to develop. 
However, I have this to say: my 
pupil was a diamond4n«the-^rough,. 
What, potential ? 

Even though he would .miss the 
pitched ball tiinety out of a hun- 
dr^ times, he would come back 
more determined each time. This 
was the offensive potential of my 
studenlA^* T' won't even attempt to 
describe his defensive play.

Diane Hufnagel outlasted six- 
teen competitors recently to cap- 
ture the Co-ed Tennis Crown of 

Diane, a sophomore in the ele^ 
mentary .«ouF8e, ouift^d three op- 
ponents successively in her climb 
to victory. 

Rugged opposition, hard play, 
and good, sportsmanship character- 
ized, the 'tournament's matches, 
and survival went to the fittest. 

After the initial matches were 
battled out, those who emierged 
victorious were Carol Himmelreich, 
Theresa Kroko, Beverly Kinley, 
Betty McGlay, Mary Lou Weegar, 
Joan Moyer. Pat Hoke, Diane Huf- 
nagel, and Elsa Di lenna. ~^ 

Closely Matched 

Thes^ A^nners were all very 
closely matched in their first trial, 
but still- more even-y paired were 
Carol Himmelreich aijd Teresa Kro- 
ko, and Mary Lou Weegar and 
Diane Hufnagel! in the ^emi-finals. 
Carol and Diane garnered laurels 
in these battles. 

Then came \tre big ^me — the 
4nstch to decide the tennis champ- 
ion of the fall season. Both Diane 
and Carol played skillfully, and 
the match was again very close. 
Diane coppod honors finally with 
two straight sets and was named 
Co-ed TeMis Champion of 1958. 

Gib Moore Chosen 
Athlete of flie Month 

From the ranks of MSTC's for- 
ward wall comes Biansfield's Ath- 
lete of th©^ Month, 'Gilbert "Gib" 

Gib, playing at the usually un- 
heralded position of tackle, has 

his 6' 3", 206 pound frame into 
State Teachers College football 

Many of MSTC's fans might best 
remember this lanky junior as the 
fifth man in the opposition's back- 
field, for Gib has an uncanny J^nack 
of breaking through the line and 
harassing the opposing backs. 

Mansfield's 1968 edition of its 
basketball Mountaineers will be 
unveiled before local fandom Thurs- 
day, December 11, against visiting 
Lycoming College. The locals will 
open t^e seiw^offiebtUy gfc B u ec k 
port, December 6. ' 

Coach William Gibson's hoop- 
sters will be bolstered by the re- 
turn of seven lettermen. The vet- 
erans, Hal Hansen, a senior; Ron 
Firestone, Mike Gamble and Gib 
Moore, juniors; Joe Martini, Bob 
Felt, and Al Zyga, sophomores, 
are expected to form the nucleus 
of a winning combination;, 

Last year, the MSTC cagers 
started rather slowly, ' but came 
on strong in the second half of 
the season to finish the year on 
the winning side of the ledger—- 
9 wins, M losses — to sport this 
school's first winning team in a 

Three freshmen. Martini, Felt 
and. Zyga, were instrumental in 
the club's late season spurt last 
year. .This trio is expected to 
share the brunt of the attack lead- 
ing to a successful season. Marti- 
ni, from Berwick, Pa., led the team 
in scoring, lasiJjnie^ ou^^ 
also up among the leaders in teafti 

Felt, out of Athens, Pennsylvan- 
ia, is considered the sharpshooter 
of the squad. Although lacking in 
his defensive ability, and not yet 
the complete ballplayer, Bobby's 
uncanny set-shooting excited local 
fans no end. Zyga, with hi» 
constant jockeying for position 
under the boMrdS], gath e rs "imndre 
than his share of reboandsT^Al, 
deprived of the "touch" on his 
shooting, has been working on this 
d^iciericy and is expected to 'be a 
double threat to the opposition in 
both rebounding and shooting. Al

Firestone and G^Mnble^ both with 
two years in the college basketball 
wars, were Coach Gibson's alter- 
nating guards last season;

Defense is not Gib's only asset, 
for he is- equally proficient on of-

gressive-type play, is one of the 
pressure players on the local unit. 
Mike, one of the better shots on 
the squad, can hit from any spot 
on the court and on a "hot" nighf 
is very difficult to defend. Mike 
is a Wort Alleghany, Pa. . son. 

Hanson, the lone senior on the 

club, is remembered for the stir- 
ring jilay of his sophomore year. 
Hal, one of the "B" boys out of 
Bradford, Pa., was slowed down 
due to an operation and was used 
sparingly by CoaOh 'Gibson last 
season. He is an adept ball hand- 
ler and capable court general. 

Moore, native of Shamokin, Pa., 
is a very rugged rebounder and can 
be called upon to spell either 
Martini or Zyga under the boards. 

Overall, the prospects of a suc- 
cessful g^ason look bright. But 
the Mounties are faced with one 
problem — that is, the lack of the 
all-important big man. Zyga, 
Martini, and Moore are the big 
men, with Zyga being the. taller at - 
6' 4".. Y - 

Coach Gibson is inclined to be- 
hove that due to this lack of height 
he will have to resort to a running 
game and utilize the fast, break ito 
the utmost. The team iS bl e ss fed— 
with an array of potent shooters 
which should make.up 'for their 
height deficiency. ' 

If confidence .^"s games, the ' < 
Mounties should win them all.

Is E.S.P. A Sixth Sense? 

by Michael Fleming 

E.S.P. is the abbreviation for 
"exti'a sensory perception." So 
now you know what it's all about. 
Oh? You are still in the dark? 
May I go a step further and say 
that you probably have this so- 
called sixth sense? Well, I'm go- 
ing to anyway. 

Did you ever predict the final 
score of a ball game, long before 
itr ended? Did you ever open your 
mouth to say something and . . . 
oh( you didn't talk with your 
mouth? Well, please shut up and 
let me continue! Thank you. As 
I Was saying, did you ever open 
your mouth^to .say something and 
at the precise nibment have some- 
one else come out with the same 
thing? Have you ever had a 
dream cioiAi -true or a premonition 
come to pass? Coincidence? 
Maybe. E.S.F. Very Possible? 

The investigation of ESP be- 
gan at Duke University in the 
year 1930, at whicl^time no other 
American University was invest- 
igating it. Today this research is 
going strong. It was at Duke, 
under J. B. Rhine, that the ability 
to perceive things without the use 
of the known senses was termed 
E.S.P. Today J. B. Rhine has his 
findings bound together in his 
book, New Frontiers of the Mind, 
available at the college library. I 
know you will enjoy the book if 
you provide yourself . a chance to 
read it. 

Perhaps you were one of the 
students who noticed and proba- 
bly "questioned the ESP notices 
posted around campus. Perhaps 
still, you were one of the interest- 
ed students who were willing to 
hire your services to a psychology 
report on ESP which I am present- 
ly preparing. For those of you 
who did, you are, beyond a doubt, 
going to develop a deeper inter- 
est in. ESP and perhaps be amased 
at your results from a run. 

ISP Run? 

What? - Oh, jrou are w o nder i ng 
what ai| ESP run ia^^. it 

works like this. We have a deck 
of twenty-five ESP cards. Five 
cards carry the symbol of circle, 
of . a star, of a square, of a plus, 
and five with symbol of wavy 
lines. You then, without looking 
at the cards, which are throughly 
shuffled and stacked face down, 
attempt to tell me the. order of 
the twenty-five cards. By mere 
luclc or chance, and it can be math- 
ematically proven, you will get 
five or below right out of the 
twen^-five. Naw^ if yon poaseisii 
ESP your correct guesses will ex- 
ceed five, and over a period of 
eight runs your average will be 
above five. - , 

Visual Proof 

You don't quite believe that ESP 
has anything to do with a person 
getting over five right ? Well, 
either read New Frontiers of the 
Mind, or stop in room 203 and 
you will be shown visual proof of 
ESP. Granted, it can not be con- 
cluded that ESP definitely exists, 
but the experts say the chances 
are in favor of it, and I'm sure 
that you find more out about ESP 
you will agree that maybe. there 
is something^to this "ex^ Mnsory 
pe rcepti o n." — ^ ^ . ;

Coach Stelmack,. while praising 
his stellar lineman, pointed out the 
fact that four of the Hounties' 
touchdowns were run through 
Moore's hole in the line. 

Mansfield, however, is not Gib's 
only claim to football glory, for 
Moore received wide football rec- 
ognition when' ptayiag . f ^r his 
Shamokin High School team. In 
1954, Gib was selected for the All- 
Pennsylvania High School Team, 
and, as we at Maiitfidld have ieeih, 
it was a justly deserved )he|ior.

of power you would, hiave. Why 
you could make or break the boy

I don't hold with this modern 
idea of the counselor listening to 
the student talk himse^ out and 
then helping him solve his own 
problelms. That stuff is for the 
birds. I have always maintained 
that the function of a counselor is 
to Jielp the student by his efforts 
and gain all the juicy tidbits he 
can. They make such interesting 
cocktail party conversation. 

After all there is no sense in help- 
ing the student find out what he 
might do in later life; he prob- 
ably won't do it anyway. As for 
his problems, who^ref ? (I've 
got problems of my owii and I 
don't go to a counselor, lify wife 
wouldn't allow it). 

The idea of counseling, like 
everything else, is self satisfac- 
tion. What does it matter about

By December 15i the secondiary 
department must submit its rec- 
ommendations for revisions to the 
College Curriculum Committee, ap- 
pointed by President Rathgeber. 

Curriculum revisions at Mans- 
field are part of state-vHde acti- 
vity and are a result of the syn- 
thesis of liberal arts and teachers 
college points of view. There is 
a tendency toward the merging of 
techniques and abstract thinking 
based on the belief t hat all co ur ses 
should deal with abstractions and 
that there are many levels of ab- 
stractions. Communications is be- 
ing stressed by the meeting and 
sharing of ideas of faculty mem- 


Apparent loyalty to established 
curriculum or resistance to change 
may be explained as a defense for 
insecurity. People fear what they

July and August quickly dis^l 
appeared. September was upon us. 
For me, this " meant the end of 
summer and back to school; for 
Bobby, finis for baseball and the 
prospect of a long cold winter in ; 
which to dream of next; year andf 
his "first love". ' 

We bid adieu. My friend and 
I went our separate ways. In 
parting, I began to wonder of 
what mettle little boys like Bob- 
by are made. Sticks and stones? 
I think not. Sugar? Spice? Hardly. 
Innocence? Yea. Naivete and help- 
lessness? Definitely, yes. Need of 
understanding, kindness, and pat-j 
ience? Yes again. ' i 

Lest Bobby and I forget thel 
very basis of our friendship, we 
take-4t 'as a lesson in human re- 
lations. My young friend had 
courage, not of the substance of^ 
David's which felled Goliath, jbut^. 
of the kind that helped him arise 
from a downcast lad to a boy of i 
five MritH a purpose-in H£e, I 

I hope Bobby put into practical| 
use the lessons I tried to teach 
him — for the game of life as^wellj 
as that of baseball — to not onl] 
try to win but to play th^ game 
well, and, if losing, to' accept grac-| 
iously and without bitt«mes8i.

Mansfield Open Forum Holds Meeting; Elects Officers for Year 

Approximately 60 students and 
faculty peraoniiilv «Mended the 
charter meeting of the Mansfield 
Open Forum held Thursday, Dec- 
ember 4, in room 84, Nortii Hall. 
This first meeting was planned to 
act as an impetus to the stimula- 
tion of student intemt in euiiwit 
world affairs. 

"The only stipulation for mem- 
bership in the Mansfield Open 
Forum is that the student be pre- 
pared to contribute his thoughts 
and words to' the success of -the 
organization," stated Dr. Samuel 
Portnoy, co-sponsor of the group. 

For Serious Students 

The MOF (as he ref erredi .to it) 
is established -with consideration 
for the serious student interested 
in serious social questions," Dr.. 
Portnoy continued, "and certainly 
it will be a sanctuary for those 
addicted to the cultural aspects of 
life." He continued to say that 
the quest' <^ knowledge is to be 
one of the fi^mV-m^st ^p6«tic 

Joseph Conaway, who, with Dr. 
Portnoy has been instrumental in 
promulgating the idea of the 
Mansfictld Open Foniin, informed 
the students that "by getting to- 
getJier and engaging in intelligent 

discussion, we will be able to pool 
out <»iltural Tesourem and achieve 

more than any individual could, 
and in a much more productive 
span of time." He closed his 
statements by mentioning that the 
Foi^m's discussion must, by its 
very n^re, be' the raiult of "re- 
flective <^ — and* not - iim<^nal 

Officers Elected 

. Ah Executive CommittM, com' 
posed of the Forum's newly elec- 
ted officers, exists for the purpose 

of facilitating progressive discus- 
sion. Meihbers of the committee 

are president, Jerome O'Dell, vice- 
president, Anthony Chiarilli; sec- 
retary, Sam Livingston; treasurer, 
Clarence White; member<at-large, 
Robert Rupar. 

It is hoped that the Forum will 
find it possible to hold weekly 
meetings. This will permit a dif- 
ferent member to prepare for and 
lead a discussion each time the 
group meets. The next nti^rting is 
scheduled for the seeoi^^iveelt of^

Union-meh Father 

Victor Riesel came naturally by 
his huge labor beat. His life, 
pfus that of his unionman father^ 
spans most of the growth of the 
labor unions, and a passion for 
clean unionism was passed down 
to him by his father, who was bus- 
iness agent of an International 
Ladies Garment Workers rtTiiloS 
local. Nathan Riesel's fight for 
honest unionism earned him beat- 
ings, and one night he was carried 
home his face so swathed in band- 
ages only his eyes showed through. 
,In March of 194Z, iie died as a re- 
sult of the permanent injuries he 
had suffered. 

Victor Riesel" was 'Ibom March 
26, 1915, and reared in New York's 
lower East Side, where crime, sor- 
did living and sweatshops were 
commonplace. He graduated from 
high school at 15 and went to work 
in a,ser|88 of jobs ranging from 
newspapers to steel mills and 
Pennsylvania mine patches. By 
studying nights, he managed to 
earn a master's degree at CSty 
College in New York. 

Crusades Continues 

The sneak effort to "frighten" 
Victor Riesel has failed. He ^li 
back at his desk and typewriter 
covering his beat in his us^al 
hard-hitting style. His cruaade 
against the underworld — in and 
out of labor — will continue. His 
accurate, "ahead-of-^exfl^l" eov- 
erag'e of important labor, political 
and industrial developments will 
go on. 

Riesel is back at his typewriter; 
he has always- used the touch 
system. None 6f his eoltmina' are ' 
dictated. He is back to ' normal 
routine with his staff. He is a^ 
brilliant, dynamic speaker. 

As he put in his first interview 
in the hospital, "The acid hit my 
eyes but not my mind, spirit or 
my backbone.'!

Mansfield, Po., December 1^58 

Reindeer soar gracefully within tine con- 
fines of the dining hdll. An cpple'Checked 
Santo beams from a window in North Noll. 
The fragrance of pine needles mingles with 
that of the warm, slightly musty dormitory. 
A passing student whistles Jingles Bells. The 
Chrislrnos season has Cdnie to Mansfield. 

Gaily-colored lights and ornaments reflect 
the warmth and happiness of the student, 
i>ut, moreover, the tragic trend away from 
the manger, an exodus oh the turnpike of 

It is conceded that Christmas is a time 
of joy. However, the joy should not be one, 
primarily, over liberation from work or school 
responsibilities, or the anticipation of a long- 
sought-after gift. It should be the true 
Christmas happiness: that of the Mother as 
she cradled her Infant Son .soon after His 
birth; that of the father as he watched and 
guarded nis family with tenderness and love; 
that of the kings upon finding the object of 
Jtheir lengthy search; that of the millions for 
whom this babe was one day to be sacrificed. 

Should we, whom He hps given life, not 
spend one day of it in rejoicing over His 
Nativity? Has the true meaning of Christ- 
mas eluded us completely? 

The older we get, the wiser we get, ds 
the adage states. But, none of us is as wise 
as the child who, when asked on Christmas 
Eve who he thought was coming to visit him 
the next day, answered not with the name of 
the rotund old fellow dressed in red, who has 
a love for children, but with that of the tiny 
infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, who has 
o love for the world. 

No Righi toi^ripe 

One for eight. If a major-league ball- 
player batted in that ratio, he couldn't com- 
plain if he were farmed out the next season. 
One for eight. If we had only that number 
of problems correct on on examination, we 
couldn't very well gripe about the instructor's 
unfairness in marking, could we? Yet, with 
this same percentage in attendance at o re- 
cent Student Government meeting, the stu- 
, dent body has seen fit to connpJain, ^ ' 

We dispute the l^goUty of Student Coun- 
cil's action on the matter of music in the 
dining hall. Whether or not Council over- 
stepped its bounds in this case is a moot point 
and of no consequence because the trans- 
action is now only port of the minutes of a 

The ancient ounce of prevention i^ still 
equivalent to its accompanying pound of cure. 
The student body Is now "deeply" concerned 
about the cure, even though we didn't core 
in the least about the prevention. We didn't 
QtterKj any Badget Committee Meeting; we 
.didn't observe ariy Student Council meeting 
(we didn't even bother to read the minutes of 
this meeting, posted on a special bulletin 
board); we didn't "hove time" for the Student 
Government meeting; in short, we didn't use 
any of the brains God gave us, but we're using 
the gift of gab to loudly disapprove of action 
token at these gatherings. 

We have no right to corrfploin! The only 
persons justified in expressing their opinions 
.j^re those people who filled the 152 seats in 
, otrOLighn Hall that day. The other 650 who 
jammed the Hut during that period, /night 
better remain silent. 

This shameful demonstration of student 
apathy toward vital matters is illustrative of 
the Mansfield way of life. There aren't too 
. mony of us who engage our brains before wf 
put our mouth in gear, 

^ The time to stop being indifferent is now. 
To prevent fire, stomp on the sparks; don't 
rush frantically about with an eye-dropper

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: - , . 

, Why must the student f oti down the steps 
to the EC at TO a.m., Monday, December 1, 
when the rain, snow, and ice came on Friday, 
November 28 of the previous week? ■ ; 

A good sign to put at the top of the steps 
would be, "If you fall, don't hurt the steps 
It's o.k. if you crack your skull or break your 
bock — they'll heal in time, but if the steps 
get cracked, the maintenance crew will hove 
to fix them (maybe). * -

Muttonheads at Mansfield 

(Editor's Note: This article has been written in two 
parts. The second will be presented in the next issue of The 
Floshlight.) - 

Several weeks agro, in an article 

in "The New York Times Maga- 
zine," J. Donald Adams advocated 
the return of a term which has 
fallen into obsolescience in recent 
years. Mr. Adams, eminent author 
and critic, would have us use this 
name — "muttonhettd" ,— to de- 
note those persons on the tray of 
the social scale, opposite the *'eK- 

"The muttonhead (is a person 
who) would like to drag everyone 
dovm to his own level and doesn't 
seem to want to raise his own. 
He resents superiority, mental 
superiority especially, and that old 
America,!! curse — the fear of what 
the (Sher fellow will think of us — 
causes too many people to adjust 
their standair<k to his.** ' 

"I'm no muttonhead!" you say, 
but are you being honest with 
yourself? We are able^;o "honest- 
ly" appraise our teachers and 
those others involved in pur col- 
lege Hfer«ren*t wr? "T. ' 

We can find fault with every- 
thing in the^ Mansfield educational 
system from the pencils we use to 
the classrooms to which we trudge, 
but we only skirt the periphery of 
the problem. ' 

It never occurs to us that the 
trouble might be with self. We 
haven't looked, though, because in- 
trospection is naturally a difficult 
task. We're all cowards, afraid of 
what we may discover. 

The Socratic ideal o^/'Know 
Thyself" has existed for - 2500 
years. Thousands have strived to 
r^^ach that almost-unattainable 
goal. Whether they did or not is 
irrelevant; they at least tried. 

Shouldn't we endeavor to do 
likewise? Some of us have no 
goal in college or life. Wherein 
lies the joy and thrill of life for 
us? Are we merely existing for 

today and ourselvesy^or are we 
living for tomorrow andypthers? 

Why are we at college ? Is it 
because we desire to improve bur 
selves? Have We a love or at 
least a deeip respect for learning? 
In ft great numl>eir of cases I doubt 

Mr. Adaijj^' doubts ^re even 
more gfave. He estimates that 
". . . more than half the students 
in our colleges are there , because 
they or their parents know that by 
going to college they^can better 
their f inalnciat and sociid pros 

Are we among this plurality or 
do we lie in another, higher 
realm? If we are not here to 
learn, why do we decry learning 
as we attend an institution found- 
ed for and devoted to that basic 
purpose? Can we not at least re 
main silent and allow those who 
wish to study do so without strew 

ing anti-intellectual boulders in 

their paths? 

Whatever the reason, we are 
here. Now, do we belong? We all 
realize, either overtly or covertly, 
that there are some students on 
campus who, frankly, have no 
place here. 

The shame of this situation, 
however, is not' iii their presence, 
but in their unawareness of their 
not belonging. 

They have been cajoled into be- 
lieving that they are capable of 
college-level work. Why? Well, 
we do it f of many reasons. 

A^very few of these people have 
been accepted at MSTC because 
their prowess is not of an intellec- 
tual but of a non-academic type. 
Studies to them' are extra-curricu- 
lar, a necessary thorn in their 

Blame them for it? Not at all. 
We contribute to this feeling of 
euphoria. i;hey eftjoy. We lionize, 
idolize, canonize, and subsidize 
them. They accept our salaams 
graciously, often in a condescend^ 
ing manner. ' 

We ease them deeper into their 
pseudo-world by our actions. "Gee, 
ain't life grand?" they think. And 
what happens when they discover 
— ^^by revelation of the Dean of 
Instruction with a request that 
they/lfeave MSTQ-^that life isil't 
so grand? 

Off into reality plods the be- 
wildered student, ego now deflat- 
ed, which once we laboriously and 
tenderly' inflated almost beyond 
the limits of elasticity. 

Their fault? No— ours. We 
lied to them. ; 

Not only do we harm them by 
allowing them here, but we are 
also unjust to the person who 
could be utilizing the classroom 
space they occupy. Would it not 
be better for Mansfield to turn 
out teachers of qi»lity than ^an- 
tities of teachers? 

A statistic of a record number 
of graduate's says nothing. .That 
figure should represent not only 
ai;i aritl^metical increase, but also 
be indicative of an equal number 
of trained, cultivated minds pre- 
pared to imbue jchildren with prin- 
cipals and values. 

The expression "cultivated 
mind" implies culture contained 
within. Sadly enough, though, 
culture to some MSTC students is 
o ft en like chcderrf to an^ Asian." — 

Certainly everyone is entitled to 
his likes and disHkei^ therein no 
ad:ounting for tastes. But^ when, 
for centuries, great minds have 
concurred in their opinions that 
there^ is something to be derived 
and, mbreover, gained from a piece

Libeity or IJkense^ 

In 1735, the first important victory for , 
freedom of the press in America was won by 
Andrew Hamilton in the case Zimger vis. 
Cosby. Zenger, the publisher # Wiw York 
Weekly Journal, a political tabloid, was tried 
for printing "libelous" facts concerning Wil- 
liam Cosby, colonial governor of New York. 

The German irhmigrant was acquitted 
only because the eloquent Hamilton urged the 
jury to consider itself competent to decide not 
only if the statements were published, but 
also if they were in fact "libelous" as stated. 
With their monumental decision the press ^as 
freed from censorship by a biased judiciary 
and a precedent was set 

More than two centuries hove passed 
since this incident. During that time, a 
myrtod of coses similar to it, perhaps on dif- 
ferent levels, have been tried. Freedorp of 
the press always come into queston, as should 
all freedom, when it tended to encroach upon 
the rights of on individual. The point in dis- 
pute was then decided upon by the jury. 

The Floshlight, as did Mr. Hamilton, con- 
siders its "jury" — its readers — competent to 
moke decisions. Material presented in the„ 
paper is not slanted in order Jo sway student 
opinion one way or another. The FloshH^^ht 
places the factual thoughts in the student's = 
minds. The rational student might pause and 
think. The others will turn to another |||^ge. 

Why should The Flashlight present on 
article in an unfair light? When you con- 
sider it, what hove w^— the life's blood of the 
institution — to gain by a display of unfair, 
defamatory, or debasing remarks directed 
toward a particular person or object? The 
answer is o cipher, verging on a-minus. 

Public newspapers which ofteri^ become 
PQliticaJ . tools, moy^iarof it b y coJo ii4b4~edltor4^4& 
or features, Wotald there be any thing profit- 
ed if The Floshlight vituperctively attacked 
the administrator! in a political editorial 
each issue? How asinine!! The valuable 
space could be better utilized by being "de- 
voted to topic pertaining to the student 

The college newspaper is not the instru- 
ment of on editor or any other individual 
person. It is published organ of, by and for 
the student. 

You determine what 4s to be included in 
The Flashlight. No one else has that power. 
The voice of The Flashight is the vox popuii. 

But, because the power of the press is art 
awful one, in the true sense of the word, dif- 
ferentiation must be mode between ts use and 
abuse. Common sense dictates self-imposed 
restrictions. It is the duty of any newspaper 
to be responsible, fair, independent, sincere, 
truthful, accurate, impartial, and decent. If 
any matter presented for publication meets 
these requirements, it is published- Should 
it fulfill these requisites, no one need . f eg r 
the outcome, ^ 

We of The Flothfight feel that as long as 
we persevere in maintaining these criteria, 
all externoj qttQinQ|>ts at interference or cen- 
sorship ore unnecessary and, furthermore, il- 
legal, in that they tend to infringe orrthe 
rights of the student. 

Last year we eliminated from our mast- 
head a rather innocuous motto. We hove not 
replaced it with another to dote, but should 
the need arise, we will adopt the following 
slogan, employed by the Sa^m Regitter, a 
colonial publication: 

."Here shall the Press the' People's right 
maintain, Unow'd by influence and unbrib'd 
by gain; Here patriot Truth her glorious pre- 
cepts draw,. Pledg'd to Religion^ Liberty and 
Low." "

Points Listed 

Listed here are seven major 
pointSi of interest and importance 

to the student body: 

,1. Only, seniors enrolled in the 
secondary department who' have 

tors were nearly mechanical. 

Under the tutelage of Joseph 
Conaway, director of the P'layers, 
the cast had little need for a 
'prompter or ostensible ad-libs to 
blanket any faux- pas. 

Mr. Conaway, devotee not of the 
maxim "Practicej;imjikea.- perfect," 
^but rather of- its revised odttloii 
"Perfect practice makes perfect," 
proved a most adept teacher of 
this adage. 

Interpretation of various char- 
actors by their portrayers'was, for 
the most part, excellent. Sowever, 
failure of a few individuals to en- 
ter their parts to the necessary 
depth caused a serious loiss of 
substance with a subsequent des- 
truction of the thematic whole. 

No person in a drama is super- 
fluous. Each part is necessary to 
the whole whether it commands 
seven or seven-thousand words. If 
the individual allows himself to 
permeate the character rather 
than the reverse, deficiency of the

Fofmer WAF Sergeant Joins Up 
With Mansfield Check-Signers Brigade 

Dominating the military service, of course, is the rnole 
element; but, when the Mansfield veteran brigade files into 
the Commanding Officer's office to flourish its John Henry's 
on that government check, it is a member of the female spec- 
ies who graces rftost that war-scarred conclave. 

Former staff Sgt. Charmayne 
Bickel, a freshman here after six 
years in the U.S. Air Force, islaims 
that single honor with no qualms 
whatsoever. She does admit, how- 
ever, that it is Ttomewhat difficult 
to adjust to the academic atmo- 
sphere after a prolonged period 
(on« re-enl^tment) of h^r "racket" 
in the Air Force. 

During here "hitch," Charmayne 
was a clarinetist in the Women's 
Air Force Band. In 1962, upon 
graduation from Bradford, Penn- 
sylvania school system, she played 
for Col. GiBorge S. Howard, direc- 
tor of U.S. Air Force bands. The 
ttudition was followed by a state- 
ment from; the colonel, tf»at should 
she enlist in the Air Force, a'chftir 
awaited her in the WAF Band. 

Initially, she was stationed at 
' Lackland Air Force Ba^e, San An- 
tonio, Texas. She remained there 
for five years, making frequent 
air trips (in "rattletraps", ar she 
calls them) to entertain troops at 
such^ places a» Alaska, Puerto 
Rico, as well as in the States. 
Later the musician was transfer- 
red to Norton Air Force B4ie, 

p:ether to - formulate policies for 
relationships between the college 
and the Mansfield business groups. 

In the planning staj^e for nearly 
a year, the committee became a 
reality with the appointmefit of 
members from the college staff

field Businciunnen's Association.

Home Ec'rs Chonge; 
New Groups Active 

Twenty-three senior home econ- 
omics girls have ben. divided into 
four grpups for their assignments 
in the Home Management Apart- 
ment. For this quarter the six 
girls living there are Shirley Wer- 
ner, Dolly Rohland, Jeaa Bnncis, 
Catherine Parke, Janice Schutt, 
and Mary Harding. 

The social activities the girls 
have planned and carried out in- 
cluded a formal dinner Wednesday, 
December 8. Special guests were 
Miss Elizabeth Allen, Dean and 
Mrs^ Thomas Godward, and Salva 
tore Natoli.. 

A buffet luncheon for parents 
of the girls and a slumber party 
were among the first of the social 
activities the girls planned. The 
guests at the slumber party in- 
cluded Lisanne Fyock, Valjean 
Comes, Margaret Bangs, Lois

Freshman Solves Gift Problem 

by Bonnie Lugg 

One evening, a short time over 
two years ago, we held ^ family 

caucus — my mother, my gn^and- 
mother, my younger brother Tony, 
and I. My.motiier presided and 
opened the meeting with: "Kids, 
^ ' what do you say we cut down on 

This was perfectly natural — it 
-^h|td been brought up, agreed upon, 
Mid ignoired (^ry year since that 
• sad ybar when we had learned 
that the beloved person of Santa 
ClauB was a myth. But, for our 
enlightenment, she elaborated: 
"You see. Grandma and I have 
been talking and we know some 
of the rest of the family aren't go- 
ing to have a very large Christ- 
mas this year. What do you think 
oi the idea of getting individual 
gifts for the whole family?" 

Pielific Clon . 

This brought a momentary panic. 
As our clan happens to be quite 
prolific, we were wondering just 
how much "family" was "family," 
and pictured ourselves with bread 
and water for Christmas dinner, 
and a cold, homeless winter ahead 
of us. . ' •■ 

We were, of course, relieved to 
learn only, about forty people 
would be involved — my mother's 
younger sister, five brothers, their 
respective spouses, and children 
(about twenty-seven of them under 
the age of thirteen). A- very 
simple job, ind e4i 

Tinie for Utta 

We all sat down around the 
table and made a list pf everyone 
we wanted to remeialwr^well, 
let's just say we made a list of 

Aft«rv our -list wa's completeed, 
we followed it explicitely, except 
for maybe about thirty-five items. 
It wouW be nothing for three of 
us to walk into a store and some- 
one remark, '.^That's a darling 
dress. Size one — who oan wear 
that?" "Oh, Sharon!" "Sharon? 
which one's she?" "Oh, you 
know, she's Uncle Bud's and Aunt 
Clara's baby — which reminds me, 
what do we get for Mike? He's 
special. Then a gift would be 
picked out for Sharon's older 
brother tq be wrapped with the 
dresses — sizes 1, 3, 5, and px. 

Nearly every night when my 
mother would come home 'from 
work, late and beladen, she would 
be greeted with — "Oh, -np, not 
more- gifts to wrap! What'ja 
get?" Her answer would be — 
"Oh, just a few things. .1 did get 
a sweet little shirt. It's a 8. Will 
it fit Ronnie?" Yes, it would, 
though that wouldn't matter. It 
would also "^fii Mike, Buddy, and 
Bill. ... 

SHIl Mere Gifts 

Such were the matters for over 
a month. Every time one of our 
Christmas clique was going to be 
near a store — "See if you can get 
something for Marcia and Jean- 
nette. We don't have anything for 
Dale, either," . would come sailing 
behind us as We hurried out the 

During that same month, we ate 
Sunday dinners in the kitchen, not 
even able to see the dining room 
table, let alone eat on it. We lost 
'8Q many thinigs on it that we near- 

ly perfected a study of the sub- 
ject. You'd be surprised how much 
area around a table you can cover 
searching for scotch tape and hold- 
ing a package together with one 
finger. The blister on that one 
finger, from contending with 
•(^Pwirly Ty»" and "Bouficy Bows," 
can be nearly as much of an occu- 
pational hazard as dishpan hands. 

Thi il Pliwt t o O a 

Meanwhile, Christmas approach- 
ed, faster and faster, and unbe- 
lieveably enough — for us. anyway 
— each person's gift was present 
and accounted for on the third 
day before Christmas. 

As each gift had'been duly label- 
ed and committed to its proper 
box for dispersioii, the fun came 
to a climax. As most of the fami- 
ly live in a forty mile radius, each 
in ia di^erent direction from our 
house, the hub of activity, it took 
most of all three remaining days 
to deliver the gifts. 

Ample Reword 

In all the fun and excitement 
of selecting, wrapping, decorating, 
and booby-trapping of gifts, I 
had, of course, antciipated the re- 
actions of nearly all my relatives. 
I soon found I hadn't expected a 

fraction of the real del|ght, which'jlEhe Old Educator, over vacation, 
was pictured in twenty small faces 
that I really love^ as they saw 
packages, with theS' natmes on 


At Lost 

On Christmas morning at our 
house, with slightly less loot than 
we usually acquired, >; we had a 
really happy -ChristnSas — truly 
we had been having it for the pre- 
ceeding 5 weeks. Somehow the 
grifts we received were niueh more 
appreciated. In the ones we had 
given, we took much more pride, 
and in our hearts we felt the true 
meaning of "peace on earth." 

KSTC Boasts 60-hr 
General education 

During the spring semester of 
1968. the curriculum committee , of 
Kutztown State Teachers College 
faculty met frequently with de- 
partme nt /heads for curriculu m 
study. As a result of ' these meet- 
ings, new curricula in Art Educa- 
tion, Elementary Education and 
Library Science Education were 
developed. These new curricula 
were approved by the Superintend- 
ent of Public Instruction May 8, 
and went into effect June 1 for all 
students registering for the first 

An important feature of each of 
the new curricula is the strengthen- 
ing bf the program by the inclusion 
of required courses involving sixty 
semester hours of credit in general 
education. The total graduation 
requirements will remain the same 
as before. The additional hours 
in general education were made 
possible by eliminating overlapping 
content in professional courses and 
reduction of credit for such cours- 
es. The revision of curricula is a 
positive response to frequent char- 
ges of weakness in teacher educa- 
tion programs. 

On Needing A Pencil Siiarpener 

by Floyd Lounsbury 

(The idea for this article was 
obtained from, "How Well Are 
Our Teachers Being Taught?" by 
John Keats, Better Homes and 
Gardens, May 1958, p. 51) 
I was talking with my friend, 

Somehow we got on the subject of 
pencil sharpeners and I stated that 
they were a necessary evil. I 
thereupon got a lecture on edu- 
cation that will last me for a 
while. I am passing it on to you. 
Don't Scoff 
"You scoff (he said) at the idea 
of the importance of pencil sharp- 
eners in the public classroom. 
Well, let me tell you that there is 
more to a pencil sharpener than 
just a simple device to put a point 
on a pepcil. People do not put 
enough time and thought on these 
small things in the clasroom. It is 
vastly more difficult than one 
might expect. 

"Not Whot, But Who" 
To begin with, one must con- 
sider the purchase of the device. 
Model, price or color make no 
difference and lasting quality is 
not even to be considered. You 
should check with the administra- 
tion; they probably have relatives 
to whom they would like to give 
the business and~will taks it Out 
of your hands. . , 

Tioga Ck^unty Candy Co. 




After you receive the sharpen- 
ers you must place them. Now 
when I was a student at Quite 
Normal we had to do a paper on 
the placement of the pencil sharp- 
ener. In my research I discovered 
that ovei^SOO. graduate papers had 
been done on the subject. The gen- 
eral agreements reached in these 
were as follows: .-- f •. 

Do's and DonVs 

1. Not too near the door; the 
students might 9lip out and not 
come back. .

2. Not too high from the floor;' 
the short stxident might make a 
mistake an d get hia ltttle fi n ger 
in the machine. 

3. Not too low; a tall stttde^nt 
might have to bend over, making 
a good target for rubber bands and 

4. Near enough to the waste 
basket for easy cleaning. 

"The rest of the points appear- 
ed rather involved and I didn't 
bother to use them, after all this 
was just a survey course. 

"I don't belive the system used 
at Quite Normal in teaching this 
important topic as adequate. We 
only spent a week on it and it 
should be the basis of a two-sem- 

"It could be combined with such 
things as bu3rhig blackboard chalk, 
ventilation of the clasroom and the 
locatiqn of the boys' rest room in 
relation to the ^trtCnce.*^- These 
problems are being neglected at 
Quite Normal at the present and 
as ^ an old grad, I "believe this 
should be changed. 

When the Old Educator had fin- 
ished, I left in a da^e. I could see 
where he had a point. No matter 
how much subject matter I knew, 
if I. could Jiot place a pencil sharp- 
ener properly I was not a real 
teacher. . - ; I 

Then I had a brain-storm — 
mechancial pencils!

Aluronl J4alL 
To Be Razed 

, by Thomas Little 

Last year we were told that 

Alumni Hall was coming down and 
what is more, one report said that 
demolition was to start April 1. 
Well, the first day of April came 
and went, but Alumni Hall still 
stood. A later report said that 
demolition would definitely take 
place during the summer vacation. . 
In fact it was so certain that we 
conducted very impressive funeral 
service for it. (And in all fair- 
ness, I suppose we must say that 
it was started: they removed the 
windows and the clock). But 
when we returned to MSTC to be- 
gin the fall term. Alumni Hall waa 
still standing. 

There was s^ Hope, though, 

for at the first meeting of the 
Men's Dormitory Association, we 
were told that no parking spaces 
would be assigned in the lot ad- 
joining South Hall because they 
were going to tear down Alumni 
Hall. However, as Autumn slip- 
ped by and Winter began to take 
its place, tfee^ p^spicT~o?"a new 
building again began to fade, until 
one day not too long ago, groups 
of men with large rotts of plans, 
in their hands be»n to examine 
the building. Th^y went over it 
from cellur to bel 

Then the word was out — the 
General State Authority had asked 
for bids on fjie erection of a new 
library - administration building 
at MTSC, which Included the dem- 
olition of A^mni Hall. Well, this 
is all history now, the bids were 
let and the contracts signed. The 
fact is, we can finally refer to 
Alumni Hall in the past tense. 

According to the contract which 
was signed, demolition must take 
place within 30 days of the letting 
of the bids — Wednesday, Novem- 
ber 26, 1968 — ^unless special per- 
mission is obtained from the Gen- 
eral State Authority. Therefore if 
demolition hasn't already started 
it soon will be. 

It is interesting to note that as 
well as a new library-achninisiara- 
tion building, the contracts that 
were signed also include the new 
atliletic field and a new power 
line for the college. 7:1 -V 

Cost Listed 

The total cost of these projects 
is $535,025, and is broken down 
into the following contracts: gen- 
eral construction, and demolition 
of Alumni Hall — $388,000, the 
Hedden Construction Co.; electri- 
cal — $61,129, power line— $4600,

J. L, Turner, Nanticoke, Pa.; ele- 
vator — $8,430, Otis Elevator Co. 

The completion date set by the 
GSA is September, 1960.

Genera! Jd.~W^^^ M 

by Oerry Williams 

General education is an ideaL 
It implies that we should know 
something about almost everything 
ift the vast field of humaq> know- 
ledge. However, in reaUliy, gener- 
al education gives but a brief 
glimpse of many subjects in the 
Held of knowledge. Is this result 
practical ? 

As teachers, we will be attempt- 
ing to disseminate our own know- 
\e^e of certain subjects to young- 
sters in the grades or high schools. 
FOT^he most_pa^^^ will be 
liaefaing Ingfish for the sake of 
English, biology for the sake of 
biology, mathematics for the sake 
of matiheraatkS}^ «te., etc. Our 
own scope of knowledge will not 
be adequate enough to teach an 
inteigrated px^gram. Purposely, 
we major in one special course 
.because we want to teach only 
that course. What then, is the 
problem t>i general education, 
which necessitates integrated ed- 

The- problem of general educa- 
tion is primarily limited to the 
college level of learning.* For the 
last decade, educators have been 
discussing the value of general ed- 
ucation. Universities and colleges 
have adopted brief survey courses, 
and they have integrated certain 
subjects" so "that the student will 
at least be familiar with more aca- 
demic subjects. Evidently, this 
has been an attempt to graduate

been left chiefly to upper-class^ 
men and graduate students. 

The emphasis upim. general ed- 
iication is not new. The ancient 
Greeks taught humanities, sciences, 
and logic. There was no attempt 
to teach ons subject alone. The 
only basic practical knowledge they 
learned was the art of war, which 
involved'* strenuous physical' con- 
ditioning. The "finer arts** 'were 
Greek society. To draw somewhat 
of a humorous analogy, the leisure 
class was the college student of 
today; the tradesman was th^ vo- 
cational student. He was-the 
prentice — the practical knowledge 
necessary to make a living. Gen- 
eral education is Jiot-new. 

Why then, are we viewing inte- 
grated education for the college 
student? The stressing of inte- 
grated education is an attempt to 
de-emphasize education. 

Is general education more im- 
portant than specialized education ? 
No, it must be realized that spec- 
ialized education and general ed- 
ucation must go hand in hand. 
Because of the vast amount of 
knowledge that has accumulated 
over the centuries, one positively 
has to study intensively one field 
of knowledge. Education is a life- 
time process. We only learn a 
part of the knowledge available 
in even one field. 
Genftral, or integrated education 

a more "r ounded" stwient. ^ ^j^ ^:::4he sjime thing in reality— should 
aliiaHpn^n^certain' subjects has be first in our academic endeavors. 

However, it must be limited to 
some degree. In four years of 
cpllesre^ we jcannot even dent the 
iron of human knowledge. 

Integrated education has its def- 
inite value. By evaluating sub- 
jects in a general way, and in their 
relationship to other subjects, we 
stimulate questions of relationships 
between subjects. For a very in- 
adequate example, how did the 
expressions in music and of the 
1^20's explain the mood of the 
society? This question would in- 
volve some familiarity with music 
and art, history, psychology, and 
sociology. In short, general edu- 
cation programs stimulate quest- 
ions. How else do we learn ? 

Too, integrated education can 
give a chronolojrical order to differ- 
ent subjects. Here again is an 
example in question form: did the 
so-called scientific approach of the 
eighteenth century scientists affect 
the literature of the period? By 
answering this qitestion, we begin 
to jfee that language and literature 
ilSTs been greatly alffected by' the 
sciences. And too, a chronological 
pattern pf reasoning can be estab- 
lished. Society as a whole could 
possibly be dated as to p^oods, It

Todd-Ao and 
Juk$ Verne 

by Mike' Fleiming 

Some of you will recall that 

about a year ago I had an article 
entitled, This is Cinerama. In my 
present article I want to pay trib- 
ute to the late Michael Todd's 
production of Around the World in 
80 Days. 

Personally, I feel that Todd-Ao is 
inferior to^ Cinerama as far as the 
physical experiencing of the movie 
is concerned, due to the fact that 
the Cinerama screen is much lar-! 
ger, thus covering a greater eyie 
focal area and producing much 
more realistic depth. However, 
with the exception of Cinerama, 
Todd'Ao 8iarpa%8es all other types 
of motion .picture entertainment, 
and is definitely worthy of recog- 

"Bug Eye Projector" 

Todd-Ad is the process used in 
such movies as Around the World 
in 80 Days and employs the use 
of "the "bug eye projector" which 
enables the picture to be projected 
on the screen with only one pro- 
jector as compared with Ciner- 
ama's three. Perfected full-dimens- 
ional stereophonic sound . adds 
greatly to one's r experiencing of 
the picture. I rate Todd-Ao as 
excellent, but Cinerama superior. 

-Precadence Sal 

The production of Around the 
World in 80 Days made motion 
picture history, shattering records 
and precedence with Toddian af- 
fluejice. Among them: the most 
stars ever to appear in a picture 
—50; the most people photograph- 
ed in separate world-wide locations 
— 68,894; the most miles traveled 
to make a film — four million; the 
most camera set-ups ever used — 
r2,000. Thirteen cameras, worth 
more than $600,000 were used, in 
addition to sound equipment val- 
used at one million dollars. The 
movie was the first ever produced 
by the late Todd. 

The movie, based on Jules 
Verne's book, Around the World in 
80 Days, took two years to com-

Difference of Opinion on 
Food Situation Expressed 

In the last issue of The Flashliirht, 

the article titled "Food Situation: 
Good or Bad," presented a rather 
colored view of our food situation 
at Mansfield. Appropriately, the 
title of the article should have 
been "Food Situation: Terrible!" 
Becaus^i f^r the most part, the 
story was so obviously biased, I 
feel it only fair to state other 
facts and express another opinion. 

Each of us is subject to his own 
individual tastes. For this reason, 
when discussing food, it is almost 
impossible to be objective. I do 
not profess to be a connoisseur. 
However, in the last five years, 
over seventy-five percent of my 
meals have been from cafeteria 
type dining halls. Consequently, I 
can Qnly compare the m^ls of our 
own dining hall with the meals I 
have eaten elsewhere. In general 
— and what can any of Us do but 
generalize? — I believe our meals 
at Mansfield are good. ^'^ 

FocMn to be ©amidsred 

When passing judgement on ,a 
cafeteria meal, certain factors must 
be taken ^into consideration. First 
is it logical to expect "home-style" 
cooking ? Second, how many meals 
are served in a day, and how many 
people are employed to prepare 
the meals? Third, is the purchas- 
ed food first or second class ? 
And last of all, how much do we 
pay for the meal{|;f ~ 

If we are to compare our meal 
here with .the meals we have at 
home, few, if any of us would 
come up w'th a favorable compari- 
son. There is considerable differ- 
ence in preparing food for five or 
six people and preparing meals for 

One to One Hundred 

Approximately twenty people 
are involved in the preparation 
of between fifteen Und ^ff hteen 
hundred meals a day. Of these 
twenty kitchen employees, over one 
third of 'them are not directly in- 
volved in the preparation of the 
food as it is presented to the stu- 
dents, faculty, and other school em- 
ployees. Ratio: A little over one 
hundred meals per person! 

The meat purchased by the 
school is first class meat. The 
school buys the second choice of 
six "^grades of meat. In other 
words, c hoice cuts a re purchase d 
as opposed to the priine cuts. 
Prime cuts are purchased only by 
extremely high class hotels and 
restaurants. With the except- 
ion of tomatoes and maple syrup, 
all the canned commodities are 
class A— the very best that can 
be purchased. 

Prices Reosonabia 

As students, we pay nine dollars 
a week' for our meals. State aid 
more than matches us dollar for 
dollar — ^just on the expensie of the 
food alone. If we take into con- 
sideraiEion the cost' of food, help, 
maintenance, ' and equipment, the 
ratio is approximately four to onef 
In short, we are more than, get-

In trying to put some variety to 
thd meals, one has to be conscious 
of the expense of wasted food and 
also appetite appeal. Too, it is 
li^essary to ^have meals which 
will be acceptable to the majority 
of the students. The Hut does a

To those who would like to have

Eeverybody in Sports" 

Kutztown STC President Lists 

Amid the frequent discussions 
concerning general education at 
Mansfield, the topic of higher ed- 
ucation as an entity has been ig- 
nored or forgotten. What exactly 
is higher education? To find an 
answer to that question is possible 
by exploring its antithesis — what 
higher education ds not. The 
following is a quotation of Presi- 
dent Q. A. W. Rohrback from the 
November, 1958 issue of the Kutz- 
tovhi State Teachers College. Alum- 
ni Newftj.^^ , ^ 

Interested in Truth 

First, it should not be coitfused 
with social consciousness and soci- 
al service. Higher educa^on is 
interested in truth and not pri- 
marily in society; it is interested 
in society only as a field of the* 
truth. Th^ highly educated person 
as such is a spectator of the truth 
«^-soeiiety, although as &n actor he 
may be unable to compass the 
whole of this truth. Thus, a col- 

Not Good Monners 

Secondly, higher education is not 

to be confused with good manners. 
A perfect gentleman, endowed with 
charm and graciousness, may for 
all that not be hig'hly educated. An 
education which sacrifices the in- 
tellectual virtues for the social 
graces is a type of modern soph- 
istry. In ancient Greece, the soph- 
ist by the power of rhetoric and 
personality made "the worse ap- 
pear the better course". Higher 
education recognizes that the ex- 
cellence of thought, judgment, dic- 
tion- and the like acquires the con- 
comitants of good ntonnent iMid a 
balanced culture. 

Not Leorning 

Thirdly, one should not confuse 
higher education with learning. A 
person may be very learned and 
erudite, and yet he maiy be quite 
uneducated. As a scholar achieves 
e minenc e in his specialty, he some- 
times becomes immersed in his 
lege education is one thing, and subject. The truly educated per-

Anti-Propaganda Service 
Ready For Youtk JPegtiv^d 

A group of students and recient 

university graduates have ann ounc- 
ed the establishment in Cambridge, 

MassMrhizsetts, of the Independent 

Service for Information vtL the 
Vienna Youth Festival^ 

The purpose of the S^ryice is to 
provide the American student and 
youth community with comprehen- 
sive and objective . data regarding 
the Communist - sponsored VII 
World Youth Festival. 

Vienna it Heit 

The Festival, to be held in 
Vienna next summer, is the latest 
in a series of mass youth events 
organized since World War II by 
two leading Communist interna- 
tional front groups: Wprl3 Feder- 
ation of Democratic Youth and the 
International Union of students. 
Next summer's meeting is the first 
to be held outside the Soviet orbit. 

Sponsors of the Information 
Serrief ^ most of whom. haveJex* 
peience in domestic and interna- 
tional youth and student affairs, 
believe that many American young 
people do not fully realize the po- 
litical* and propagandistic nature 
of such festivals. 

They point out that this, in large 
measure, is due to a flood of ex- 
pensive and misleading literature 
with which the Festival organizers 
deluge American college campuses 
and youth organisations. 

To Distribute Studies 

The Information Service, in con- 
sultation with other American 
youth and student groups, intends 
to prepare and distribute docu- 
mented studies on ,the history and 
operation of past festivals. 

Preparations for the Vienna 
gathering will be continually an- 
alyzed and periodically reporte^. 
In addition, background data on 
U.S. and world affairs, indications 
on what may be expected in Vien- 
na, and practical information as 
to misanft of participation in tha

at th6 , 


Mansfield, Pa ' 

' ' ' I' ll ; '■- ' 

Festival will be available to those 
young Ainerieans who' decide to'dit- 
tend or who might visit the Fest- 
ival briefly while traveling in 

Supports Non-commies 

The organizers of the Informa- 
tion Service support the position of 
representative student and youth 
groups in the U.S. and Austria, 
ther host country, along with those 
in numerous other non-Communist 
countries who have decided to boy- 
cott the Festival and deny it any 
official prestige. 

At the same time, they do expect 
many intelligent -and patriotic 
Americans will wish to attend in 
an individual and non-representa- 
tive capacity. 

The Information Service believes 
that such participation can be 
valuaMe-tf the individuals a t te n d - 
ing are fully informed as to the 
nature and purpose of such a 
meeting so as to lessen the ex- 
ploitation of their presence for 
propaganda purposes. 

Americon Participation 

The Service further thinks that 
American participants should be 
equipped to effectively present a 
democratic viewpoint, dispel partic- 
ular misconceptions of American 
society, and thus promote under- 
standing with the young people 
from many countries who will be 
present. '' 

Any person having questions 
concerning the Festival or desiring 
information about it may com- 
municate with the Service at its 
office: 324 College House Offices, 
Harvard' Square, Cambridge 38, 

in him. He becomes not a stone, 
not a machine, not a technician, 

not an anj^el, but simply and pure- 
ly himself — namely a man. Higher^ 
education brings out man's essent-^ 
ial humanity, a good which he can 
not afford to exchange for any 
other outcome. 

Not High School Education 
J'^rthly, higher education is 
hot hfgh~School education. Second- 
ary education is a mere initiation 
and its product the ordinary citi- 
zen, who is not necessarilyn an 
educated man. He has overcome 
illiteracy but has not acquired 
cultivated mental proeesMltr ^ 

If secondary education produces 
the ordinary citizen who follows 
and imitates, higher education pro*— 3" 
duces, or ought to produce, the 
cultivated citizen who thinks cre- 
atively and leads. _ 

The marjc of an educated person 
is that he knows that some things " 
are immutable, absolute and es- . 
sential, and he knows what these 

things are. This mark-is ac^iuived 

as he passes from the state of 
opinion, prejudice, and influx to 
a state of knowledge and truth. 

Distinguishes from Life of Grace 

Finally, higher education must 
be distinguished from the life of 

p:race. Great learnings are not- 

needed to see .God;,it takes onljt-^—- 
a pure heart. When God infuses 
our hearts with this grace, we 
attain an outcome which no higher - 
education can. provide. The uned- 
ucated person can be a saint. Hu- 
man nature may rebel even though 
highly educated. 

This raises the question of the 
Mystery of freedom and of sin. a 
Obviously, above all higher educa- ; 
tion there is a need for the com- 
posing order of love and suffering. 
Thus if God's love is revealed to 
one. who is highly educated, he.- 
may -still harden his heart, and. 
close his eyes to it. 

Separate Five Areas 

To distinguish these five areas 
of human endeavor fi-om higher 
education does not imply that one 
despises social activities, ifobd 
manners, scholarship, prior ed- 
ucation or belief in God, Yet, 
none of these attainments by itself, 
or all of them together^^^jionatiti 
higher education.

"I am especially well pleased 
with the general attitude of the 
squad and in a sense it is attitude 
which makes or breaks the per- 
formance of a team," related the 
lanky coach of the Mountaineers, 
who is in his third year as chief 
conjurer of Mansfield's basketball 
fortunes. — , - ^ 

In pre-season scrimmages again- 
st Alfred and Penn State Univeni- 
ties, the MSTC cagers shoved 

signs of developing into a well- 
oiled unit. Coach Gibson was par^ 
ticulaitty impressed with the show- 
ing of freshmen Dave Russell, 
Wilmer "^ ugar" Criap, .and JJicit- 

Diiaste. c 

"You can expect this freshman 

trio to see plenty of action during 
the course of the season," spoke 
the leader amidst the fazste-daszle 
of a recent practice session. 

DiBasio and Crisp are .looked 
upon to *8hiM^^ The riffioui^^ 
es, along with Zyin», Martini and 
Moore. Russell is expected to 
b olster the backcourt attack. 

"If my boys can keep the atti-

needed to win, they will give our 
opponents a run for their money."

of classical music, a poem, or a 
classic, why do we, less learned, 
but certainly not less humble, shun 
them as being either sissified or 
unwortl^ of our time? 

And, as thie piece de resistance, 
we have the insolence to display 
oiir isrnorwnce in public denuncia- 
tion of th^se immortals and their 
works. We cannot even be satis- 
fied to Bit back quietly and let 
others inake foob of themselves. 
We insist upon taking part. 

Evidence of this is rife on cam- 
l9us.. Take, for example, the pre- 
valent depreeattOBH^-BMU^4overs 
or the poor attendance at either 
the Mansfield Feature Series, the 
jazz concerts, or the-Hl-Jl Vpro- 

Anyone at college should wel- 
come 'the opp<»tuniiy to become 
cultured, if onjy to a small degree. 
Some have tried it and discovered 
rich paths to tread, even a new 
life. Nothing can be lost in the 
endeavor and its appeal lies in its 

Those of us who desire to see 
a material advantage to culture 
may be interested, p6i%ap|[i fright- 
ened, to know that one of the most 
frequent terms of disa pproval^_of 
^'person or act in Rosaia is he 
knlturni — not cultured.' 

Self-improvement ahoufi natur- 
ally be the f oieaJ: point of a college 
education. Simultaneous with the 
efforts of our instructors to instill 
in us an adequate amount of know^ 
ledge, should exist our own at- 
tempts toward individual better- 

How many of us are indolent 
enough to be satisfied with just 
"getting by?" How ma n y a r e t oo 
lazy, for instance to look up the 
words in this article that are un- 
familiar tq themi but necessary for 
complete understanding? ' 

A great many of us are lazy in 
regard to classes also. Instructors 
when spotchecking sometimes dis- 
,cover that as much as 90% of the 
class eschewed an outside reading 
assignment made previously. 

Also, if an instructor makes a 
statement that we disagree with, 
within reason, how many of us 
would have the intestinal, or 
rather, intellectual fortitude to 
challenge him on that point? Or 
even to question the validity of 
the statement? Or require cita- 
^on fii raamples as r^erences? 

Are we struck dumb by the 
"what will others think of me" 
feeling? Do we fear repercussion 
from the instructor by way of a 
grade? (The greater number of 
instructors would ^leome such a 
person in their classes. It would 
be an indication that there is still 
some mental life existing in the 
studmt body). 

Creative thought is, for many, 
at MSTC, either a thing of ite 
past or of the future. It's reason- 
ably certain that there is an in- 
t^ieetual famine on at present

SCA Gives Cheer

in the annual GMdan Sine.

has been done. What do we mean 
when we say the Age of Reason? 
We don't limit this period to one 
subject simply because it had its 
influence on many fields of know- 
ledge. One of the most important 
purposes of general education, is 
to make us communicative, social 
beings. How nice it is to be able 
to discuss art at one minute and 
science the next! By not being 
totally ignorant of formally be- 
lieved separate subjects, we can 
meet and discuss with artists and 
scientist — communicate — socialize! 

These points, and so many, many 
more, make integrated education 
valuable, in the life of any college 
student. General edu^ has its 
part and will always have a part 
in any college or uniiqersity.' The 
importance of the role it plays 
depends upon the curriculum offer- 
ed by the college, and also the 
educational policy adopted by the 
cottege. In other words, will the 
college offer specialized training, 
general training tnr will it happily 
combine the two appr«^faeS to 
education ? 

Author's Note: In the next issue 
of Flashlight, I will attempt to 
present some of the problems faced 
by the student in a general edu- 
cation program and does general 
education call for better or just 
more professors? v

The initial member of this trio 
was superbly characterized, fully 
capturing both tl\e feeling ^of the 
part and the second night's audi- 
ence. The previous evening he 
had borne the brunt of the "at- 
tack" on- a make-me-lvigh audi- 

The second performance found 
the audience, because of its more 
homogeneous composition, reflect- 
ing the scintillating^^jdi|Uog^§_(^s^ 
from th^e stage insteiad of stolidly 
absorbing it. 

Jules, the second convict, seem- 
ed about a half-size too small in 
capability for his part, but was 
bolstered by an admirable deter- 

Alfred, his companion, was suf- 
ficiently love-struck to get the 
point across, and at times showed 
glints of orginality in both speech 

and gesture. 

The object of his affection, 
Marie Louise, . a young maiden 
stricken with a strange malady in 
which she perpeti^ally sawed the 
air at her sides wi^ h«r palms, 
showed not much more than a de- 
sire to do well. 

Marie Louise is supposedly in 
love to an almost ecstatic degree 
with a lad soon to arrive , from 
Paris. Unfoitunately, she spoke of 
and awaited his coming as though 
he lived around the comer and 
had nearly worn out his welcome 
in previous visits. 

When Paul, the expected, finally 
does arrive, one saw why 'he act- 
ed in that manne^r. The young 
gentleman, whQ j^i jupposed to be 
a youthful liftmif, acts more 
like an Osric. He moves about 
the stage letharg^ically and seemed 
impatient for the final curtain. 

The inept portrayals of these 
lovers started the decline and fall 
of the roamtn' comedy. Paul, be- 
cause of his failure to properly 
build up the hopes of Marie Louise 
and th«i spurn her for her an- 
other received not the audience's 
hearty approval as he died, but 
rather an unnecessary symi^tliy. 

His beloved also depicted her 
intense love inadequately. When 
she is scorned we feel little 
has been lost and that she will get 
over it at the Cayenne Summer 
Camp for Girls. 

Uncle Andre fulfilled his func- 
tion as obstacle to love and happi- 
ness and was then surmounted 
with the aid of a little reptile. 
Acted excellently, arrogant, hate- 
ful Andre was dispatched by the 
"angels" with little sympathy or 
remorse felt, especially on the 




part of t he ad u ienc e i i^ t h e perfe ct 

effect. ' 

The remaining members of ^lie 
Ducotel family were characterized 
fairly well. The actor, at times, 
allowed himself and his manner- 
isms to invade Mssr. Ducotel's and 
did not particularly make us sym- 
pathize with Mme. Dttcoti^ dl9« 
appointment in her spouse. 

Later, this disappointment^the 
shattering of her^dreamsr-should 
have easily seen and felt in the 
breakfast scene with Jules. 

Mme. Ducotel at this time rec- 
ognizes a certain *elan in Jules 
lacking- in her husband. Her re- 
pressed feelings are supposed to 
surface and reveal her frustration 
and hopes. 'However, the reluc- 
tance of Jules to reply in anything 
but a monotone made us crave for 
the return of soliloquy. 

Racy dialogue, unexpurgated 
with the exception of one express- 
ion, spiked the punch of the per- 
formance. But then, sex always has 
been^ a best-seller and indicative 
of the trend in modern "literature" 
— "What foods these morals be!" 

The production's few faults lay 

not, as has been stated, in timing, 
scenery, costumes, or the like. 
These essentials bordered on per^ 
fection. The basic difficulties 
seemed to evolve from lack of 
thought. To act is not to assume 
an identity but to allow the identi- 
ty to assume. Fundamentally, it 
is deep thought about who and /or 
what the character represents. It 
is concern more with why and 
what he does than worry over how 
he does it. 

One cannot advocate the players 
becoming diieiples of 'Stitnislavski, 
one can suggest that individuals 
assume the responsibility of eli- 
minating meaninffless, repetitive 
gesture, monotones, and lack of 
sufficient thought. When acting, 
an individual does not represent a 
certain' person. To all witnessing, 
he is that person. .

However, 1 believe, too many of 
us were influenced only by the 
student opinions in the last part 
of the article. Although I believe 
the comments were sincere. Some 
of them were nonsense! I have 
purposely tried to state a favor- 
able view of the food situation— 
not for my own benefit^but iso 
that any future judgments about 
our food might get the adequate 
consideration the food proUdms

It would not be right to dose the 
article without making some sug- 
gestions. The suggestions I will 
put in question f 6^ because $ey 
are debatable. 

1. Would it be possible to in- 
crease the kitchen staff? 

2. Would it be possible for the 
school to purchase better facilities 
for serving such things as eggs 
and pancakes? 

9. Would a continental breakfast 
decrease expense enough so that 
noon and evening meals could be 
made better than they are ? And; 
would a breakfas»~^ this ki n d be 
acceptable to the student body? 

I do not say that these things 
are necessary. It is only that I 
sincerely believe that, if these 
questions could be solved, our 
meal situation would be improved. 

; No CetefersI ""7" 

If it is at all possible, keep a 
profit-making organization out of 
the kitchen. That is to say, I do 
not want to sec'^aterers at Mans- 
field. Mansfield is one of the few 
teachers colleges without catering 
service. Let's keep it that way.. 
For the most part, I like the meals 
the way they are. I don't believe 
a profit-making organization could 
improve thein.
